Shaping future farm leaders in Saskatchewan

The Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan (APAS) again offering the APAS Young Leaders (AYL) program, presented by Farm Credit Canada (FCC).

Formerly known as the Youth Leadership and Mentorship Program, AYL offers producers in Saskatchewan between the ages of 18 and 40 the opportunity to experience and learn about farm policy from the grassroots all the way to Ottawa in an engaging and supportive environment, according to an APAS press release.

“AYL is a great way for young farmers to grow their network and learn the importance of agriculture policy and its impacts on farm operations,” APAS president and past participant in the program, Ian Boxall, said.

“The program acts as a succession planning tool to equip the next generation of farm leaders with the skills and tools they need to continue driving Saskatchewan farm and ranch success.”
