How will we clear up agriculture’s – and society’s – best challenges?
By speaking to one another – and listening.
Oliver Goshey and I had a dialog about what fashionable agriculture seems like on a Canadian farm like mine. You would possibly anticipate his podcast, Regenerative Abilities, to speak with farmers with a distinct perspective than my very own. However, whereas Oliver and I don’t agree on every part, we discovered plenty of widespread floor in our dialog. Agriculture encompasses a lot variety, from greenhouse operations, to dairy, to poultry, to large-scale grain farming, and every phase is extremely hyper-local of their challenges and alternatives. We should always at all times maintain that in thoughts when attempting to be prescriptive to different farmers. Oliver and I share the identical hope for farming: leaving issues higher than we discovered them.
I feel you’ll actually get pleasure from our dialog. Discover it on Spotify, iTunes, or his web site by clicking here.
I farm with my household, together with my spouse and three younger sons, together with a number of different relations. We’re a Third-generation farm that strives to repeatedly enhance – to go away issues higher than we discovered them.
I am concerned in numerous locations within the agriculture business as properly to attempt to construct a greater future. As a farmer and an agronomist, agriculture, and the science and enterprise therein, is my fascination and my ardour.
