General Manager Crop Production - (Manage a Large Grain Farm)
Location: Regina Area / Indian Head Area
Our client, (CanMar Farms, previously HCI Farms), farms approximately 20,000 acres near Regina. They require a GENERAL MANAGER of Crop Production to oversee all aspects of this operation. This is an amazing opportunity to run a well equipped and well financed progressive farm with a top quality land base and a terrific operational team. They are always looking for opportunities to test new ideas, diversify and modernize.
As the General Manager of Crop Production, you will draw on your knowledge of grain production, land management, equipment requirements, human resources and grain marketing. You will make the farm business plan and develop the annual budget. Then you will work closely with your on-farm operational team to execute the plan in a safe and cost-effective manner. You will watch for opportunities to learn and improve, and you will mitigate issues when things don’t go as planned.
Our ideal candidate has at least 10 years of grain production / grain farming related experience in Western Canada. You must have the ability to make a farm business plan and then execute the plan with a goal of maximizing yields, managing costs, investing wisely, and leading the team in a safe work place environment. Our ideal candidate is 80% grounded in established farm management best-practices, and 20% eager to research new approaches, test new ideas and take advantage of opportunities. Grain marketing experience and in-field agronomic skills are definite assets. Do not be intimidated by the size of this job because the current General Manager (who is retiring soon), is available to support you as you move up the learning curve.
