Resilient Women in Agriculture

Crop Quest's Amy VanStraaten shows us what it means to be a resilient woman in agriculture!

In December of this year Farm Management Canada will be hosting AgEx, which is the Agricultural Excellence Conference. The conference, which is to be held in Fredericton, NB, on December 2 through 4th, showcases the theme "Cultivating Resilience" in recognition of the incredible resilience that our farmers need to be capable of in order to succeed in this business. As part of this year's theme Farm Management Canada is putting on a competition for women in agriculture, inviting them to submit a video in which women can demonstrate their own resilience in agriculture.

The contest is as follows:

Women involved in primary agriculture from across Canada will have the opportunity to win an Atlantic winter adventure. Five (5) winners will receive an all-expenses paid trip to attend the informative and educational AgEx Conference in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

To Enter

Contestants must produce a video, one minute or less, based on the theme:

How do you remain resilient for your farm business? 

Contestants are encouraged to be creative with their video submission (i.e. tape your video outdoors on your farm, interview others, etc). The videos will be vetted, posted on Farm Management Canada’s YouTube channel and judged on presentation style and content relevance.

Video Requirements

Your video entry must be:

  • One minute or less in length
  • Titled “Cultivating Resilience – A Women in Ag Video Competition”
  • Include both Farm Management Canada and Farm Credit Canada logos at the end of the video
