Northern Ag Update-Fort Vermilion
April 12 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm$25
MARA’s 2018 Northern Ag Update is on April 12, 2018 at the Fort Vermilion Community Complex. Northern Ag Update is a unique event which brings subject matter experts to Mackenzie County for presentation on topical agriculture issues. This year, we are honoured to be hosting Staff and Directors of Alberta Barley, Alberta Canola, Alberta Pulse and Alberta Wheat Commissions. Do you want to know what the Commissions have been doing for you as a farmer? This event is an opportunity for Farmers in the Peace region to interact with the grain commission staff and Directors.
Dr. George Clayton, retired scientist and former Director of AAFC, Fort Vermilion will share his experience on “Farming in Northern Alberta, the Past, the Present and the Future”. Dr. Clayton worked several years in Fort Vermilion and his efforts ensured the Fort Vermilion Experimental Farm remained a research facility.
Dan and Donna Trottier of AgSafe Alberta will do a presentation on Close Calls and how to prevent farm accidents.
This event is supported by Alberta Barley, Alberta Canola, Alberta Pulse, Alberta Wheat Commission, Alberta Agriculture & Forestry and Mackenzie County
