As harvest drags on and Mother Nature is reluctant to cooperate, Alberta Young Farmers and Ranchers across the province have something to look forward to come November 23-25. ‘Rock the Farm,’ will once again be bringing quality speakers together with farmers 18-40, to share knowledge, experience and insight relevant to the young farmer.
The conference is AYFR’s biggest event of the year and the schedule promises to be engaging, informative, and a good time! Hosted at Calgary’s Deer Foot Inn and Casino, the conference will pair great speakers and networking opportunities to achieve a weekend where the takeaways make it time well spent.
Some of our speakers include Greg Appleyard, Isaac LeClair, Don Christensen and many others. Greg Appleyard is the President of Ag Risk Solutions Inc. and has an immense amount of practical marketing knowledge. He is a guy who started from very little and has done very well by understanding how to market effectively. Greg alone will make the trip worthwhile!
