tiffin conference series:
farm management strategies for 2000

Lethbridge Community College is hosting the first annual presentation of the Tiffin Conference Series on February 28 and 29, 2000 at the Lethbridge Lodge Hotel. The Tiffin Conference Series brings world-class learning opportunities to farm managers in Southern Alberta.

On Monday and Tuesday, February 28 and 29, Lethbridge Community College will host the first annual Tiffin Conference, Farm Management Strategies for 2000.

The conference runs over two days and features Canadian and US speakers from across the spectrum of farm financial management discussing: measuring financial performance, risk management, high output agriculture, farm survival and estate management.

The keynote speaker for this year’s conference is Dr. David Kohl from Virginia Polytechnic and State University. Dr. Kohl is on special leave from his teaching duties as a professor of agricultural finance, small business management and entrepreneurship. He has conducted more than 2,000 workshops and seminars for farm credit organizations, producers, agri-business groups and regulators. His presentation will focus on Megatrends in World Agriculture and Measuring Financial Performance.

The conference is funded through LCC’s Ronald Tiffin Agricultural Endowment, established through the estate of Ronald W. Tiffin. The fund supports educational ventures promoting agricultural outreach, research and development, and international exchanges.

Early registration (by January 21) is $125 (including GST) and then it jumps to $165. Full-time LCC or University of Lethbridge (Agriculture) students can get in for $40. Register by phone with Visa or Mastercard, 320-3323.
