Join us for Lethbridge College’s 21st annual Tiffin Conference, which will take place on Thursday, Jan. 16 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.
