Rural Roots Canada postpones summer Ag Days, moves to virtual event

Calgary (Rural Roots Canada) — With the COVID-19 situation continuing to evolve, Rural Roots Canada has decided to postpone and shift the upcoming RRC Ag Days events in June and July.

The Grande Prairie, Alberta event scheduled for June 23, 2020, at Saskatoon Lake Hall will now be held on Tuesday, November 10, 2020.

The events in Rolling Hills, Alberta, and Yorkton, Saskatchewan scheduled to take place July 20 and 23 respectively are now going to be turned into a virtual event.

Co-owner of Rural Roots Canada and organizer of the event Craig Lester says they are excited to be offering a virtual experience for farmers, businesses, and industry stakeholders.

“This event will feature panel discussions, demonstrations, as well as question and answer sessions giving farmers, businesses, and organizations a very interactive way to learn practical strategies to grow their bottom-line,” Lester said.

The date of the virtual RRC Ag Day, which will include topics from the crop, livestock, and business sides of farming will be announced in the coming weeks.

Lester says it is very important that the events RRC holds for the next few months continue to adhere to social distancing practices to ensure the health and safety of everyone taking part.

Rural Roots Ag Days are a series of interactive, informative, and entertaining agricultural events for farmers and ranchers. These unique workshops give local farmers a chance to access industry expertise on a number of crop and livestock production as well as farm business topics. The days are designed to be informative, interactive, and create opportunities to network.
