‘FARM MANAGEMENT CANADA’ / ‘GESTION AGRICOLE DU CANADA’
Considerably more than a ‘Society’ website offering a very wide range of information, news, services and business aids including software, farm output prices, weather forecasts and so much more. Conferences and local links provided. Membership includes a bi-monthly newsletter. Purchases can be made from the site.
A choice of English and French language websites, and there are sister websites dealing with farm succession. Worth making a visit just for the breadth of coverage, including CBC news articles from around the agricultural world.
Previously the Canadian Farm Business Management Council – the organisation celebrated its 20th anniversary with a change of name in 2012
CFM / GAC were the principal organisers of the 20th International Farm Management Congress (IFMA20) in Québec City in July 2015
