The Chicken Farmers of Canada (CFOC) have introduced a new Young Farmers Program, with the aim of connecting the younger generation of chicken producers with others like them across Canada.
Selected participants will gain valuable experience to help with their personal farm operation along with knowledge on how to use the various tools available in the growing industry, according to the national organization.
The program will also be an opportunity for farmers who have gone through 12 of the 18-month program to help educate those who enrol in the program a year after. This will ensure there will always be a carryover and knowledge transfer, says CFOC.
CFOC also hopes that these young leaders will help shape and promote chicken farming within Canada in a leadership level of some kind.
