Administrative History of Carman District Farm Business Association

The Carman District Farm Business Association is a non-profit farm organization. It was formed in 1957 to improve business management. Jack Hudson, the University of Manitoba Agricultural Economics Department was hired to help members improve their management skills. The University of Manitoba collected data on farm economics for over ten years. In 1972 CDFBA joined Western Manitoba Farm Business Association and South West Farm Business Association to work together as the Manitoba Farm Business Association. CDFBA was a member of Canadian Grains Council and Manitoba Farm Bureau and was instrumental in planning agriculture policies.
