UFA is Olds College's 2019 Partner of the Year. Patrick Machacek - OC's Vice President of Development & Strategy - says both Olds College and the United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Limited (UFA) recognize innovation and technology within agriculture are going to be critically important to pass along to the learners who are going to be leading the ag sector in the years to come.

The recipients of Olds College's Partner of the Year award support the values, mandate and reflect the vision of the local post-secondary institution in a manner that has a positive, measurable and lasting impact.

Patrick Machacek - OC's Vice President of Development & Strategy - says this year's Partner of the Year is the United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Limited (UFA).
