We’re excited to host the 2018 WestGen Annual Meeting and WestGen Days on March 19-21, 2018! This year is especially exciting as the Westcoast Classic sale and BC Spring Show fall on the same week.
So step off your farm for a few days and join us as we hear how WestGen fared in 2017, discuss plans for the future, plans for new WestGen initiatives, listen to the all-female producer panel: Amanda Kessel, MB; Nelleke Gorter, SK; Crystal Olive, AB; and Nicole Tuytel, BC share about their own farms and discuss Farming in a New Era as well as socialize with your peers. WestGen Days is about respecting our past, taking pride in our ownership, and ensuring that the next generation of members can benefit too.
It’s an opportunity for you to have your say advising the directors who represent you on the board about what you value and where you want the focus to be placed. Have your say – This is Your Company!
Enjoy some hospitality and social time while getting to know some of your out of province neighbours. Wednesday morning will include some interesting seminars followed by tours at 3 interesting farms including Corners Pride Farms, Chilliwack; Hoek Holsteins, Agassiz; and Dykman Cattle Co., Abbotsford. WestGen Days should be an be an enjoyable and educational event that promises to return you home with new ideas to consider on Farming in a New Era.
We look forward to have you join us at the 2018 WestGen Days!
