Farm Management Canada is hosting free, one-day farm business practices assessment workshops across Canada beginning later this month.
The workshop, Seeding Success: Assess, Act, Achieve!, is open to all Canadian producers and farm families and management teams. The workshop is funded through the Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council, as part of the Sectoral Workforce Solutions Program.
Participants will work their way through a series of self-assessment questions to identify their current practices under key management areas:
- Production Management
- Financial Management
- Human Resources
- Succession Planning
- Social Responsibility
- Business Goals
Based on their self-assessment, participants will identify their top priority areas for improvement to start creating action plans.
Participants will not be asked to share personal or financial details of their operations, but rather assess their practices against industry best practices. Participants will also learn about additional support and resources including advisory services, training and cost-share funding opportunities to help achieve their business goals.
