Event Description

Join OBPC for a day of networking and education!

The three major areas of focus will be; Grower Experiences and Innovations (2014 & 2015 Ag research activities), Animal Bedding and Biomass Markets. 

The event will focus on future biomass production growth, including the drive for much more acreage and active biomass producers.

As a result of the serious straw shortage in our province, one segment has been dedicated exclusively to animal bedding. 

In the Biomass Markets segment there are a range of short presentations planned, which will shed some light on near term and future biomass market opportunities.

Lunch will be provided, as well as refreshments & networking after speakers.

To Clean or Not to Clean? Managing DON in Grain Corn

A number of growers cleaned corn this fall in efforts to reduce DON. Whether it is on the combine or at the bins, the general message is to remove as much fines or cob as possible as these harbour the highest levels of DON. Cleaning reports were variable however; some reported good luck in reducing DON, while others reported little or no change.
