Event Description

New Expo Launches in June

With Ontario home to an estimated 350,000 horses and almost 80,000 horse owners, it makes sense that there should be a place to gather and share the newest innovations in horse management. So, on June 4 to 7, 2010, a new tradeshow called Canada’s Outdoor Equine Expo is poised to bring all breeds and disciplines together in the middle of this immense horse hub.

Hosted by Canada’s Outdoor Shows Ltd. in partnership with the University of Guelph’s Arkell Research Station and Equine Guelph, Canada’s Outdoor Equine Expo will offer attendees indoor and outdoor trade show exhibits, interactive displays, expert speakers, professional networking, youth education and much more. This outdoor demonstration-oriented equine event will provide horse owners, riders and businesses with access to key resources in a one-stop buying environment.

“The equine industry in Ontario is very significant but the number of educational opportunities does not reflect the economic impact the industry brings to the province,” says Canada's Outdoor Shows President, Lorie Jocius. “Visitors to Canada’s Outdoor Equine Expo will experience first-hand equine research translated into practical applications through hands-on demonstrations, clinics and exhibits.”
Part of the greater Canada's Outdoor Shows family, Canada's Outdoor Equine Expo will join the ranks with the nation’s largest agricultural trade show - Canada's Outdoor Farm Show – held each September in Woodstock, Ontario showcasing 700 exhibitors and drawing almost 44,000 attendees. Heading into its 17th year this September, Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show has become a world-class agricultural event with a focus on showcasing new technologies, innovative research through live demonstrations. Using this same philosophy, Canada's Outdoor Equine Expo plans to address the needs of today’s equine industry on a business-to-business basis.

Over four days, attendees can browse indoor and outdoor exhibits, learn from interactive clinics hosted by top-tier experts and watch young horse lovers enjoy Equine Guelph’s interactive EquiMania! education area. Monday will be designated as “Race Day” with a heavy concentration of racing-specific professional programming and clinics with emphasis on thoroughbreds, standardbreds and quarter horses.

“The University of Guelph is a leader in equine programs, both research and education,” says Gayle Ecker, Director of Equine Guelph, the outreach arm of the University of Guelph. “This is a unique opportunity to demonstrate how the latest equine research can benefit the horse owner – from the trainer of the fastest racehorse horse to the newest Pony Club member.”

Canada’s Outdoor Equine Expo will be held at the Arkell Research Station, part of the University of Guelph’s vast network of research facilities across Ontario. “It makes sense to locate this show at Arkell in close proximity to the equine owners, researchers, veterinarians, trainers and coaches in the area,” added Lorie Jocius. “These are all very busy professionals. In order to best serve this group, we want to be in their backyard.”

Committed to offering a well-rounded and inclusive event, Canada's Outdoor Equine Expo will target elite professionals all the way to young riders. This premier equine experience will cap celebrations during Horse Week when it opens the gates June 4 – 7 for all breeds and all disciplines to access the experts and businesses that can help them remain on the leading edge of their industry.

For more information, visit www.EquineExpo.ca or call Canada's Outdoor Shows at 1-800-563-5441. Canada's Outdoor Equine Expo will be held June 4 to 7, 2010 at the Arkell Research Station near Guelph, Ontario.

How one company is reducing agricultural waste on Earth Day

As the world celebrates Earth Day on Monday, one agriculture organization is reflecting on the work it accomplished in 2023. According to a release from CleanFarms, a non-profit group that ensures farmers actively contribute to a healthy environment, the agriculture industry used many recycling and safe disposal programs for agricultural plastics and packaging last year, and there’s certainly an appetite for more solutions in the future. One example that CleanFarms offers is AgriRÉCUP in Quebec, which operated four permanent collection programs and two pilot programs in the province that captured pesticide and fertilizer containers, plastics for hay and silage protection and seed, and pesticide and fertilizer bags. “We’re thrilled to have seen so much expansion in our programs last year,” said Barry Friesen, executive director of Cleanfarms. “Earth Day encourages us to acknowledge the important work we get to do on behalf of our members, with farmers, first sellers, ag retailers, an

More incentive for grads to consider agriculture-focused vet career

On any given day, Prince Albert, SK veterinarian Peter Surkan sees roughly 40 patients, but for every patient he sees, there are dozens more waiting. To accommodate all of the clients in the area, Surkan said there needs to be more vets, especially in smaller, rural communities. His practice in Prince Albert only has three full and part-time veterinarians, compared to 10 vets a decade ago. On Friday, the province announced $13.2 million in funding to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM) in 2024-25, representing a $667,000 increase over last year. The money will partially subsidize 25 training seats for Saskatchewan students. “We continue to see a rising demand for veterinary services in the province and they are a key support for our growing economy,” Advanced Education Minister Gordon Wyant said in a press release. “This is a priority investment for Advanced Education that supports the continued implementation with five new seats, bringing the total now to 25 seats, t

Squeal on Pigs Manitoba receives new Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership funding

Manitoba Pork, in partnership with the Government of Canada and the Province of Manitoba, and in collaboration with Manitoba’s agricultural sector, is pleased to announce that the Squeal on Pigs Manitoba initiative will receive over $2.6 million over the next four years to further the work of tracking and removing wild pigs from Manitoba’s landscape. “Wild pigs continue to thrive across Manitoba and are vectors for many diseases that have a devastating impact on both domestic pigs as well as other animals,” said Dr. Wayne Lees, project coordinator, Squeal on Pigs Manitoba. “Together with our partners in both the provincial and federal governments, as well as Manitoba’s agricultural sector and stakeholders across the province, this new funding will allow us to further our efforts to track, trap, and remove wild pigs from the landscape and protect our province.” The goal of the Squeal on Pigs campaign is to identify where wild pigs are in Manitoba, control their spread, and remove as m
