Join Holistic Management Canada at the Manitoba Forage and Grasslands Conference
November 12-13 2024, Brandon, MB.

Collaboration works for all of us: This year, we are working in partnership with MFGA on their Regenerative Ag conference to provide a high quality experience for producers in Manitoba.

Soak in inspiring speakers: As part of our HMC-led session, we’re bringing David Irvine and a local producer panel to talk about the evolution of farm families and how to make effective financial decisions. This will be in addition to MFGA’s stellar line up of speakers on regenerative land practices.

Network your heart out: The coffee and conversations will definitely be flowing. Meet new people, swap stories and hear what others are learning.

“This conference reinforces and validates what we have been doing. It helps to activate action among our team and family.” – Holistic Management Canada Conference Participant

How To Ensure Successful Farm and Ranch Transfers
