The Agricultural Excellence Conference
The Agricultural Excellence Conference (AgEx) is an annual event taking place in a different location every year across Canada. The theme Cultivating Resilience focuses on building the capacity for you and your farm to weather any storm and seize opportunity. Conference-goers will come away from AgEx equipped with information and tools to enhance Canada’s farm businesses.
The 2019 event takes place December 2, 3 & 4 2019 at the Fredericton Convention Centre in Fredericton, New Brunswick. You can learn more about the conference at fmc-gac.com/programs-services/agricultural-excellence-conference/.
Contestants must produce a video, one minute or less, based on the theme:
How do you remain resilient for your farm business?
