Two Ontario producers are this year’s winners of the Robert L. Ross Memorial Scholarship, allowing them to attend the CTEAM program.
CTEAM stands for Canadian Total Excellence in Agricultural Management and is managed by Agri-Food Management Excellence. During the program, farmers learn detailed financial, marketing and human relations management skills, using their own operation as a case study. Ross was instrumental in establishing the CTEAM program.
Peter Jennen of Thamesville and Scott Thom of Denfield will each receive $8,250 to be applied towards tuition and travel expenses. Applications for the next set of scholarships are due in September 2017 — for details see agrifoodtraining.com.
