Event Description

Grey Bruce Farmers’ Week (#GBFW17), in its 51st year, will run from Wednesday, January 4th to Tuesday, January 10th, starting with Beef Day, and ending on Crops Day.  It is a 7 day Agricultural Conference packed with a most impressive and informative line-up of speakers!   The coordinators for this event, Grey County Ag Services, in conjunction with agricultural commodity leaders from Grey and Bruce Counties, have attempted to feature at least one high profile speaker for each day, targeting the issues and challenges facing the farming community today. 

As always, exciting Panels have been developed for 2017.  These panels include, on Dairy Day, three producers to share their perspective on Calf Rearing.

Dr. Alan Vaage, Ruminant Nutritionist, Jaylor, will join us on three GBFW Days.  On Dairy Day, he will present, Optimizing TMR Mixes for Lactating Dairy Cattle. On Goat and Sheep Days he will share, Total Mixed Rations for Goats/Sheep.

Dr. Robert Tremblay, DVM, DVSc, Dipl ACVIM, Bovine/Equine Specialist, Boehringer Ingelheim (Canada) Ltd. joins us on Dairy Day to provide an informative and dynamic review of Simple Tips to Help Make Raising Calves a Little Easier.
