Part 2: A Trusted Framework for Developing Strategy and Strategic Planning on Canada's Farms
This webinar presents the framework used in the Canadian Total Excellence in Agricultural Management (CTEAM) program to help find the strategic focus that makes a farm successful. The combination of the CTEAM framework and the innovative approach to financial performance measures (from Part 1 of the series) will be used to demonstrate how participating farmers set the right goals for their own farms and implement management practices to achieve them.

Part 3: Overcoming Greed and Fear in Commodity Markets
Many farmers have trouble selling during price rallies because they fear that they may sell too soon. Unfortunately, this often results in a lower price once the rally ends. This webinar will introduce potential trading guidelines, through the use of futures, forward contracts and options, as tools for financial discipline and success.
