Each year we strive to bring in the most relevant, up to date, informational speakers possible to Manitoba Ag Days.  This year is no exception: the program has been finalized for the 2019 show and you are in for a really impressive line up of  speakers. We could not put on such a world class speaking event if it were not for our partnerships with FCC, MNP, Manitoba Agriculture, Manitoba Canola Growers Association, Manitoba Wheat & Barley Growers Association, Manitoba Organic Alliance and the presenters themselves. We thank you for partnering with us for our 2019 Show! We were approved for 26 CEU Credits at our show! CCA's make sure you plan your day so you can take in these sessions!
