AGRINET Management, Training and Employment Services Ltd. is a privately owned corporation. Our shareholders, staff and contracted associates provide AGRINET with over 80 years of combined experience within the agricultural sector. This expertise is very diverse, from farm management to government liaison experience.

Commitment to Excellence: Our network of agricultural professionals allows us to keep pace in a rapidly changing global industry. Our commitment is to remain current and knowledgeable on changing trends affecting agriculture, and be able to transmit our knowledge to individuals, groups or organizations in a timely and cost effective manner.

As a Red Deer based corporate, networking association of agricultural professionals, our mandate is to provide industry leading management, training and employment services to the agricultural community. We want to help farmers and agricultural businesses become more competitive in this ever changing world. If you need a new employee or are looking for a job, just call us. If there is a field of agriculture that you would like a career in, but need training, we can help with that too.
