Lethbridge College created AgENT thanks to a generous $2.5 million gift from Cor Van Raay.

AgENT Innovative Ag Competition 2019: Grant Vossebelt, Cor Van Raay, Mallory Adams, Evan Weir.

“With this gift, I am saying we need in the future very good farmers who know how to market their crops and who know how to work the futures market. They need to know about all the things that a businessman in town needs to know – plus they have to know about how to put the seeds in the ground. I thought there was a real need – not just for farmers but for people who work on the business side. There is a shortage of people who have a real passion for agriculture and who want to go that route. We need to raise more kids thinking agriculture is something good.”
