Y We Farm video competition opens

If you could tell a consumer one thing, what would it be? Farm Management Canada's Y We Farm video competition is asking young farmers to answer this question in their submissions to win a trip to the upcoming Agricultural Excellence Conference in Winnipeg. 

Young farmers, between the ages of 20 and 40, across Canada are being asked to submit a short one minute video and winners will be selected based on the quality, creativity, coherence and relevance of the video. The deadline for the Y We Farm competition is October 19, 2018. 

Three winners will be awarded an all-expenses paid trip the Agricultural Excellence Conference (AgEx) taking place in Winnipeg, MB from November 26 to 28, 2018. The conference will see farmers, advisors, government, industry associations and private industry come together for roundtable discussions, keynote speakers, discussion panels and a national farm business resource showcase.
