Media Advisory - Young Canadian farmers to be in Ottawa for annual conference

OTTAWA, Feb. 25, 2015 /CNW/ - Close to 130 young farmers are getting ready to meet in Ottawa for a national annual conference next week. The Canadian Young Farmers Forum has prepared a robust agenda focused on the theme Family Farming 2.0. – Preparing for 2050.

On the verge of a federal election, young farm leaders are standing together and tackling important discussions about revitalization and growth across Canada's agriculture sector. Among other speakers, young Nova Scotia egg farmer, Blake Jennings, will talk to his peers about his farm that is almost entirely reliant on wind energy.
