Nominations are now open for the Farm Management Canada's (FMC) 2018 Wilson Loree Award, honouring those who have made contributions to agricultural business management practices and expertise in Canada. 

The nomination deadline is October 5, 2018, with the winner accounced during the Agricultural Excellence Conference on November 27 in Winnipeg, Man. The award was established 15 years ago and is named after Wilson Loree who was one of the founders of Farm Management Canada.

FMC encourages the nomination of individuals or groups that:

  • have demonstrated innovation in areas such as turning research into practical management tools, adapting best practices from other sectors to agriculture, and finding new ways to deliver training, information and resources to farm managers;
  • have served as a role model and a mentor to colleagues, partners and clients, inspiring them to achieve their full potential;
  • have demonstrated the ability to network and develop partnerships to include others in furthering the shared goals and vision of the agriculture industry
FMC staff and board members are not eligible for the award. 

Last year, Darrell Wade, founder of Farm Life Financial Planning Group, was awarded the 2017 Wilson Loree Award. Other past recipients include Merle Good, notable farm finance expert from Alberta, Terry Betker, president of Backswath Management Inc in Manitoba, and Peter VanderZaag, owner of SunRISE Potato in Ontario.
