There’s lots to see and do at Farmfair International, including these four events.
Sponsored by Ag for Life, this is a career fair-style event to help youth learn about employment opportunities in the agricultural industry.
“They will be able to speak to company representatives and young ag professionals to see what is out there in terms of ag industry jobs and what they can look forward to in the future,” said Suzanne Bielert, event manager with Northlands.
The event takes place on Nov. 9 in Rooms 301 and 302, and there are two sessions (9 to 11:45 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.).
