A Ministry of Agriculture event is coming to Weyburn on Thursday, March 15th. The South East Farm and Ranch Update Committee along with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture are presenting the afternoon of 'Building and Empowering your Team from the Ground Up'. An event designed to help anyone but particularly agricultural producers with human resourcing issues.

Beth Vandenhurk, Local Producer, felt there was a need for an event to deal with this Human Resourcing in agriculture issue so approached the South East Farm and Ranch Committee who made the request to the Ministry of Agriculture.

"For your business to grow and prosper, you need people to work with, whether its going to be your employees or bankers or brokers or family.

This is an agricultural event which is open to anyone who would like further information on working with others.

"Everyone is different and so you get hese generation differences, communicaiton style differences. How do we grow our businesses in working with people?"

"What we have are two wonderful speakers coming in," said Vandenhurk. She explained Stacy Brownridge will give a presentation on best practices including how to handle difficult situations and address the needs of different generations on the farm or workplace, recruitiong and retaining staff. Staci Lang will be presenting on "Focusing on the 90%" in this ever changing agriculture world.

"She has travelled for 25 years spreading this meesage.

"Between the two speakers we will have a panel discussion and this is going to be addresing the employment needs in south east saskatchewan and both the challenges and successes."

The event takes place at McKenna Hall on Thursday at 1 pm. Vandenhurk also said tickets are available from the Agriculture Society 306-842-4052. The cost is $30 in advance and $40 at the event.
