Making final preparations for my presentation at the Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council (CAHRC) Summit in Winnipeg this evening and it once again donned on me how much I love this industry and what it represents. Agriculture is the place I, like so many of those around me, call home. And the deeper I get into it, the more I realize I wouldn’t have it any other way.
In some ways the jobs we do every day on the farm are very different from when we started 23 years ago, yet they are grounded on the very same premise, which is growing crops, producing products for the world and doing something we can and are proud of.
The advice we seek on the farm has changed too. Our technical adviser is jazzed by the new ideas and videos we send him, seeking his advice. For a ‘city kid’ with distant rural/ag roots, he expresses his interest in our vision every time he finds and shares an article or a technical tool that could help the farm. Its that shared commitment that drives the business every day.
And speaking of shared commitment, big brother Lance will arrive later this evening. Unfortunately too late for this evenings event but we’ll get to have a business meeting together on the road over the next 3 days. Looking forward to it. Here goes….
