AgChoice has a long history supporting education of its customers. Since AgChoice was formed in 1999, AgChoice has offered a range of educational programs including annual Ag Forums, specialized industry workshops or lunch-and-learns and sponsorship of outside educational programs and events.
Some of AgChoice's premier educational programs include:
AgChoice is proud to be a program partner for AgBiz Masters, a learning series for young and beginning farmers that teaches business and financial management skills through a blended learning approach. AgBiz Masters is a two-year program where participants complete five online modules and attend three in-person meetings and farm tours each year of the program. AgBiz Masters is eligible for credits through AgChoice's SmartStart program, an incentive program for young or beginning or small farmers offering interest rate reductions on new AgChoice loans. For more information on AgBiz Masters visit www.AgBizMasters.com.
AgChoice hosts several Ag Forums across its service territory each winter. These events feature well-known, national speakers and also highlight topics of importance to many AgChoice customer-owners. Check out our Calendar of Events to view Ag Forums scheduled for the upcoming year.
