Farms.com can tie many of its beginnings to the University of Guelph.  The seeds for the Canadian side of the business were planted at the University of Guelph, so it is with great pride that Farms.com has partnered with the University of Guelph (Ontario Agricultural College) to feature articles written for the University of Guelph Agricultural Communications Course given by Owen Roberts. 

“The University of Guelph has been producing excellent agriculture business communicators for years,” says Farms.com President Graham Dyer (and University of Guelph alumni).  “We are very impressed with the quality of the articles written by the students.  It is clear that they all have bright futures in the agriculture industry.”

The Agricultural Communications course helps student to apply hands-on communications practices that will be useful in business communications throughout their future careers.  The focus is on writing and presentation skills with a particular focus on agriculture issues.

Owen Roberts explains that many of these students recognize that their cohort will play an important role in dispelling many of the urban myths about agriculture….and they are ready to take on the challenge. 

Over the holiday period, Farms.com will post two articles each day in the Farms.com Industry News section of the website, and the articles will also be included in the Eastern Ontario Newsletter.  Each student’s bio will be featured at the end of the article.  The first two articles are:
