The Raceway at The Western Fair District is gearing up for the $300,000 Molson Pace which will highlight the closing night program on Friday, May 25. This year’s event will be bigger and better than ever and fans should note that special post time of 6:50 p.m. has been implemented for that night only.

For the first time ever, the Molson ‘Post Time Party’ will be held featuring three live bands who will perform in the Progress Building , adjacent to the track, throughout the evening.

The headliner will be Dallas Smith, the former lead singer of the popular rock band Default. He is currently embarking on a solo career and his hit singles If It Gets You Where You Wanna Go and Somebody Somewhere are rapidly climbing the country charts.

Tickets for the concert are priced at $15, which includes a $5 betting voucher, good for any race on the Molson Pace program. They can be purchased online at www.westernfairdistrict.com.

On the wagering side, the pick-4 will offer an increased guaranteed pool this year of $15,000. And, once again, The Raceway will team up with the Horseplayers’ Association of North America (HANA) to allow horseplayers an opportunity to vote on which races make up the pick-4 sequence that night.

The pick-5 will feature an instant guarantee (yet to be determined) that night as well. Both wagers offer a 15% total takeout – two of the best values in Canadian harness racing.

In addition, one lucky patron that night will have their name drawn to receive a $500 win bet on the Molson Pace. Fans must be on track to qualify for the draw.

Defending champion Foiled Again, headlines the list of this year’s nominees which also includes pacing stars We Will See, Betterthancheddar, Up The Credit, Aracache Hanover, Atochia and Strand Hanover – just to name a few.

The Molson Pace program will also include a tribute to recent Hall Of Fame inductee and ‘London Legend’ Dave Wall. On the track, four City Of London Series finals and an OSS Gold Final for three-year-old colt trotters will highlight the undercard.

More details will be announced in the coming days. To keep up to date on this year’s Molson Pace, bookmarkwww.westernfairdistrict.com.

Food terminal op-ed from Minister Ernie Hardeman

The Ontario Food Terminal is one of the top wholesale produce markets in North America. Its success is a credit to the people who work there and do a great job, often with limited resources. The Food Terminal is a key part of our agri-food sector, which is an economic driver for the province. Our recent provincial budget clarified the importance of the Food Terminal’s success going forward - not just next year, but for the next 50 years. I want the terminal to be not just the best in the country, but the best in the world.

Processing vegetable growers dismayed at lack of consultation OPVG awaits release of proposed changes to regulated marketing system

Ontario’s processing vegetable growers are disappointed that a major announcement by the province concerning its intent to overhaul the regulated marketing system was made without any input from the grower community.

National Soil Conservation Week

Each year in April, National Soil Conservation Week is celebrated to bring special attention to the role of farmland soil for providing abundant food for consumers. Not to be taken for granted, this year April 21-27 is a reminder that the thin layer of topsoil covering farmers’ fields requires extensive knowledge and superior management skill to ensure our food capacity remains eminent for future generations.

OSCIA Celebrates National Soil Conservation Week

National Soil Conservation Week, championed by the Soil Conservation Council of Canada (SCCC), is an opportunity to reflect on the importance of healthy soil resources to OSCIA members, participants in OSCIA-administered programs, and all Ontarians. “Promotion of soil health and conservation is at the forefront of OSCIA’s applied research priorities, our partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), our recognition of Soil Champions, and our administration of cost-share programs supporting soil health-enhancing best management practices,” says Andrew Graham, Executive Director at OSCIA.

Timing Spring Turn-out

Spring is in the air, and livestock and farmers alike are eager to start the grazing season. Timing that delightful move is critical, as spring grazing management sets up both yield potential of the pasture and the amount of gain achievable for young stock.
