Last month, RealAgristudies asked farmers and ranchers across Canada for their perspectives on their involvement, support, and challenges with producer groups.

Over 700 farmers participated to share their thoughts on:

  • Producer group membership and participation
  • Asking for check-off refunds, when available
  • Effectiveness of producer groups
  • Praise for what groups do well and where they need to improve
  • Identifying gaps in producer group performance.

Below, the co-founders of RealAgristudies, Shaun Haney and Justin Funk, share top-level analysis of the survey results.
