Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

We are in the midst of planning GBFW17.  It will run from Jan 4th to Jan 10th.  Beef Day will start us off and then the days will be Dairy, Goat, Sheep, Horse, Ecological and Crops.  GBFW takes place in the Elmwood Community Centre, in Elmwood Ontario.

Farm Safety Testimonials are a powerful part of our speaker and topic rosters.  The opportunity to hear about a producer's close call, makes us sit up and perhaps think about how we do things on the farm. The chance that one life might be saved in the crowd, is one of the reasons that we continue to share these stories.

I need your help. If you know of anyone that has had a farm accident, and would be willing to share their story, please let us know. We appreciate that it is not easy to stand up there and share the circumstances of their accident. We will help and support that producer in any way that we can. There are far too many accidents on the farm. We need to do whatever we can to decrease farm injury and fatality numbers.

If you know of any producer that would be willing to tell his or her story, please let us know.

Thanks everyone!
