Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan will host its annual conference online this year on November 25, 2020, between 1PM and 4:30PM.
The annual event brings people together from across the agricultural spectrum, from crops and livestock to horticulture and poultry production, as well as large and small scale farms, agribusinesses, dietitians, food companies, researchers and government. This year’s theme is managing misinformation.
Featured keynote speakers this year:
Professor Timothy Caulfield is a Professor of Health Law and Science Policy at the University of Alberta, host of Netflix TV’s A User’s Guide to Cheating Death and author of Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything? Caulfield will discuss the topic Infodemic: Is Misinformation Killing Us?
Dr. Frank Mitloehner is a Professor and Air Quality Specialist, at the department of Animal Science at the University of California at Davis. He is the former chair of a United Nations food project to benchmark the environmental footprint of livestock production. Mitloehner will present “Rethinking Methane: The Path to Climate Neutrality for Animal Agriculture”. Could livestock actually be part of the solution to the problem of global warming?
Other highlights include:
- Presentation of the Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan Champion Award
- Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan’s Year in Review
- An interactive conference app to encourage networking and sharing

Today, less than 3% of Canadians have a direct connection to the farm, which is one reason why so many have questions about how their food is produced. Farm & Food Care works to address consumer questions and inspire more confidence in our farmers and in Saskatchewan-grown foods.
