Administrative history

The Carman District Farm Business Association (CDFBA) is a non-profit farm organization. The CDFBA was formed in 1957 to improve business management. Jack Hudson of the University of Manitoba Agricultural Economics Department was hired to help members improve their management skills. The University of Manitoba collected data on farm economics for over ten years. In 1972 CDFBA joined Western Manitoba Farm Business Association and South West Farm Business Association to form the Manitoba Farm Business Association. CDFBA was a member of the Canadian Grains Council and Manitoba Farm Bureau, and was instrumental in planning agriculture policies.

Custodial history

The fonds was donated to the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by Dick Werner in 2002.
