The Delta Hotel

50 Stone Road West

Guelph, Ontario


Knowledge is power, and in any business enterprise, education confers the power to be profitable. There is now a whole new technology available, which can ensure both increased profitability and improved sustainability in agriculture. Balance – both mineral and biological – is the keystone of this approach, but there are numerous management tips, tricks and synergies that complete the equation. The bottom line is that this holistic, precision approach simply outperforms the conventional approach.


This four-day certificate course includes comprehensive presentations, hands-on exercises and your own set of take-home guidebooks. It also includes a human health workshop which is both entertaining and informative with each participant receiving a comprehensive "report card" on his or her own personal health.


The course teaches:

  • Reducing chemical dependence & increasing fertilizer efficiency
  • Accessing soil nutrient reserves
  • Improving water management and soil structure
  • Boosting both your health and the health of your livestock
  • Acquiring simple strategies to combine with existing practices


Tuition for the full 4-day course is $860 + HST and includes daily continental breakfast, lunch, and one evening dinner as well as all course materials and Certificate testing. The class will run from 8am until 5:00pm each day.

Bush Hog, first to market with a 10 year limited gearbox warranty

Since 1951, Bush Hog Inc. has built trust with our customers and “reliability” isn’t just a word, it is the foundation of our culture. Bush Hog products have earned the reputation for their durability and ruggedness in the most challenging work environments. This reputation continues today and to demonstrate this, Bush Hog is offering the only 10 Year Limited Gearbox Warranty in the rotary cutter industry. This exciting announcement came at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky this past week.

We take a lot for granted

EIGHT DAYS IN November 2019 taught us lessons that I hope we carry with us for some time. CN Rail train crews went on the longest rail strike in a decade and the ramifications of that strike were felt nationally — throughout agriculture and into other sectors as well. We have had grain service disruptions before, and we have dealt with them, but this was something we didn’t know would happen, and we didn’t foresee the ramifications to grain farming and agriculture until it was happening.
