Speakers

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 Growers Association and the presenters themselves. We thank you for partnering with us for our 2019 Show! We are in the process of applying for CEU Credits and will let you know ASAP what we have to offer this year!
