Prom is a special moment that every teenager anticipates. It is the perfect opportunity to create unforgettable memories with friends and loved ones. One creative promposal that has gone viral is a farm-field prom proposal. 

The proposal involved FFA member Ryan Hazeltine, a young man who wanted to surprise his girlfriend with a unique prom invitation. He approached the owner of a nearby farm and with permission, created a "PROM?" message on the field with hay bales. He enlisted the help of his father, a harrow, and a John Deere tractor —and a drone to see the results.

Abby Anderson, Hazeltine’s girlfriend's reaction to the farm-field promposal was priceless and the photos of the event went viral on social media – she said yes.

Prom is a memorable experience that you can make even more special with a creative promposal. Kids who grow up in rural and farming communities use their background to make creative proposals meaningful.  It created  a moment Hazeltine  and Anderson  will never forget!

The Manitoba Seed Growers Association (MSGA) held its first annual SeedLink Conference in Brandon last week, where a new president was appointed to take the helm of the organization.

A.J. Armstrong of Armstrong Seeds in Boissevain took the gavel from Past-President Tom Greaves. In a sit-down interview, Armstrong shared insights into his personal journey within the seed industry. Born into a family deeply rooted in seed cultivation, he took the reins of the family business in 2003, building on a legacy initiated by his father in 1980.

Regulatory modernization emerged as a significant focus of the conversation. While acknowledging the complexities of the process, Armstrong expressed optimism about the potential benefits for seed growers once the regulatory framework is finalized.

Discussing the dynamics of working with family in a business setting, he stressed the importance of open communication.

Operating with a streamlined team that includes his mom as the bookkeeper, his father as the “gopher” handling specific tasks, and a dedicated employee for day-to-day operations, the Armstrong family has successfully navigated the intricate balance of personal and professional relationships.

Open discussions about roles, responsibilities, and business plans contribute significantly to the smooth functioning of a family-operated seed business,” he said.

SeedLink is a new event; the decision to explore a return to a two-day annual meeting format sparked enthusiasm among industry partners, including key players and sponsors like SeCan, FP Genetics, Canterra Seeds, and numerous others.
