Grains in Action 2020
January 27, 2020 - January 30, 2020
Grain Farmers of Ontario is looking for young farmers to participate in the 2020 Grains in Action program, January 27 — 30, 2020. Grains in Action is a three-day program featuring tours at Ontario end-use facilities and presentations from agricultural researchers and Grain Farmers of Ontario staff. The program is designed to create a peer network among young agricultural leaders, introduce them to the broader grain industry, and help them learn more about Grain Farmers of Ontario. Our goal is to encourage young farmers to become more actively involved in our organization.
If you are interested in attending the 2020 Grains in Action program, or would like to recommend a young agriculture leader for the program, contact Mel Reekie at firstname.lastname@example.org or 226-979-5581. •
