A team of farm management instructors from the University of Manitoba’s School of Agriculture were awarded the prestigious Wilson Loree Award for 2005. The award is given annually by the Canadian Farm Business Management Council (CFBMC) for extraordinary contribution to developing and promoting new and positive change in agricultural business management practices and expertise in Canada. Ernie Steeves, Lorrie Koroscil, Scott Corbett and Gabi Sponagel-Ridder received the award at the CFBMC Innovation Day banquet on June 7, 2005, in Ottawa. The four farm management instructors are responsible for developing and teaching courses in the two-year Diploma in Agriculture at the University of Manitoba; the only program in Manitoba providing comprehensive training in farm management and agricultural production. The non-monetary Wilson Loree Award was created three years ago by the CFBMC to recognize those who have made significant contributions in business management, either regionally or nationally.
