Cow-Calfenomics 2017/2018
Coming this fall and winter to a community near you. Take advantage of this great learning opportunity!

Cow-Calfenomics is an information session designed for Alberta’s beef producers and industry partners. This year’s sessions theme is Enhancing Farm Business Decisions in Alberta’s Cow Calf sector.

Alberta Agriculture and Forestry will be delivering these sessions with the strong support of our partners, Growing Forward 2, Agriculture Financial Services Corporation (AFSC), Farm Credit Canada (FCC) and the Alberta Research and Extension Council of Alberta (ARECA) member organizations.

This series brings a lot of information, ideas, and opportunities for producers to add to their management “tool kit” – making better choices based on better information. Equally important is the chance for producers to engage and interact with peers, helping turn information into action.

Topics this year will include:
· Cattle market situation and outlook
· The use of risk management tools in the beef industry
· Business structures for new entrants
· Production enterprise analysis
· Agriprofit$ Beef
· A Farmer’s Guide to Agricultural Credit
· The value of having a mentor

Once again Anne Wasko will be joining us and speaking on “Cattle market situation and outlook”. We are very excited to have Anne out with us again. Anne’s passion and insight for Canada’s beef industry makes her presentation a must-see.
