Join us for Lethbridge College’s 20th annual Tiffin Conference, which will take place on Thursday, Jan. 17 at the Sandman Signature Lethbridge Lodge.

The Tiffin Conference is a one-of-a-kind event in southern Alberta and has been an important platform for discussing current issues and trends in the red meat industry. Over 350 agricultural producers, students and industry experts attend this event every year.

The Tiffin Conference is made possible through the Ronald Tiffin Agricultural Endowment Fund, which was established in honour of Ronald W. Tiffin, and is administered by Lethbridge College. The goal is to provide world-class learning opportunities to primary producers as well as agri-business and agriculture students.


We are excited to bring you five outstanding speakers this year. As we developed our theme, "Entrepreneurship: Opportunity, Risk and Creative Disruption", we realized the value in telling local success stories as well as bringing in perspectives from different regions. We are looking forward to hearing these inspirational stories and encouraging everyone in our audience to take bold steps to advance our industry.

Please note: Question and answer sessions will follow each presentation. Speaker bios are available here.
