WOODSTOCK, ON - Sheep are the newest addition to the livestock offering at the 2010 Canada's Outdoor Farm Show. There are almost 150 sheep and lambs in various displays scattered across the Show Site in Woodstock, Ontario - but no one is counting because there is far too much to see at the 17th edition of Canada's largest agricultural trade show.

"After all these year, I am blown away by all the farm equipment that has arrived here over the weekend," says the Show's Vice-President, Doug Wagner. "By the start of the Show on Tuesday morning, there will be over a billion dollars of equipment and products on this one site - and that's definitely buying power for Ontario Farmers!"

Equipment has been rolling into Woodstock from all over the world - wide track field units from Quebec - tractors from Kansas - a wood burning generator from Washington State that 'excites' water - livestock feeding equipment from Europe - tires from India - and the list goes on.

In fact, Canada's Outdoor Farm Show is the only place in the world where farmers can watch two different robotic milking systems from two different manufacturers working 30 feet apart on two herds of 35 cows each. And then farmers can watch the manure from those cows turned into biogas energy using a mobile anaerobic digester from western Canada.

"If you are involved in agriculture, Canada's Outdoor Farm Show is the place to be this week," adds Wagner. "You really can't believe the magnitude of the technology that is here until you actually see it with your own eyes. It makes you really proud to be involved in farming and agri-business in Canada."

Canada's Outdoor Farm Show runs September 14, 15 & 16, 2010 at Canada's Outdoor Park in Woodstock, Ontario. For details, visit www.OutdoorFarmShow.com or call 1-800-563-5441.

Monitoring Canola for Cabbage Seedpod Weevil and Tarnished Plant Bug

Cabbage seedpod weevil (CSW) are being found in spring canola, particularly in earlier planted fields that are beginning to flower. CSW may begin to appear just prior to bolting and can primarily be found on flower buds until pods begin to form.

Ontario Field Crop Report, June 21, 2018: Sulphur response in Ontario’s field crops

Sulphur (S) had been a neglected nutrient in Ontario for many years. For decades, in much of Ontario, sulphur came in significant quantities from the sky – deposited from emissions from industrial activity. Even before that, impurities in fertilizers and more widespread application of manure helped ensure a regular addition of sulphur to our soils.

Simcoe Agribusiness Breakfast Meeting Minutes – June 20, 2018

High winds, hail and pounding rain in some of the area over the past week has added frustration to an already difficult spring seeding season. A category F2 tornado with maximum wind speeds of 180 km/hr along with significant hail cut a path about 30 km and up to ½ km wide from the Norwich to Fisherville area. Thunderstorms (and hail) Wednesday June 13 and Monday June 18 brought “the million dollar rain” for many producers with anywhere from 0 to 90 mm of precipitation. Pounding rains caused significant soil erosion and crusting in some newly planted fields. Soil health and infiltration capacity differences between neighbouring fields was evident in surface runoff. Conditions remain dry in much of the region and additional “gentle” rainfalls would be welcomed.

Ridgetown Agribusiness Breakfast Meeting – June 19, 2018

This is the final meeting for spring 2018. A fall meeting was discussed: stay tuned. Most areas in Southwestern Ontario received some rain yesterday (Monday). Amounts varied widely, 2-80 mm, most areas receiving 10-20 mm. For most growers it was a critical boost, although not really enough. Parts of Niagara are the exception, and they got hammered again.
