UoGuelph launches Foundations in Agricultural Management

The University of Guelph has launched a Foundations in Agricultural Management certificate course. The course is funded by a $1.25M donation from the RBC Foundation and support from Farm Credit Canada. It is intended to train farmers and producers in farm management skills such as business planning and strategy, financial literacy, mental health and resistance, and family farm transition planning. It includes eight video modules that are self-paced and offered completely online. “[P]roducers are actively seeking resources to support them as their farm operations become larger and more complex,” said OAC Dean Dr Rene Van Acker. “I am confident that this course will equip producers with the knowledge and resources they need to run successful farm operations for generations to come.” UoGuelph Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
