Launching a new generation of success
New people building knowledge, training and connections to make a positive contribution to farm animal care are essential for Alberta to remain a leader.
That’s why having a strong student presence at the LCC and creating the student mentorship opportunity, Meet the Experts session, is such a vital part of the annual event. Meet the Experts is a unique forum that allows students to interact with a diverse group of industry mentors, asking questions, learning and making contacts that can help them as they complete their education and move toward starting their careers. In all, 29 students and 30 industry mentors participated in this year’s session.
“This is one of my favorite parts of LCC,” says Annemarie Pedersen, AFAC Executive Director.
“We are so thankful to FCC for sponsoring this session and to our many student sponsors who make the student participation possible. The conversations and connections at Meet the Experts and LCC often plant seeds that benefit everyone involved for years to come. I am always impressed with the students – we have a bright future ahead as they bring fresh energy and ideas to the farm animal care community.”
Strong student participation was one of the highlights of the 2019 LCC. “Students came ready to make the most of the opportunity with great questions and their own insights,” said Brent Bushell, Western Hog Exchange and departing AFAC director. Big thanks to all who participated and especially to our many student sponsors who made this possible!
