Welcome to the AFSC Podcast! The goal of this limited podcast series is to provide Alberta producers in-depth information to support decision making on their operation around risk management.

Our first episode looks at the unique risks facing Alberta producers in 2020, amidst COVID-19 and challenging markets. We speak with Steve Funk, CPA, CA, director of Farm Income Programs at MNP, about the challenges farmers are facing right now and the risk mitigation strategies they can use to protect their bottom line.
