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. 

 

Here’s a glimpse of some of the featured keynote speakers and presentations:

  • Ecological Day has something for everyone.  Learn about Moveable Greenhouses & Other Season Extending Options; delve into An Ecosystem Approach to Farming; and take some notes about Fencing Options. Don’t miss Chuck Mitchell, a certified Organic Farm Inspector, who will enlighten the audience with his knowledge of Soil Microbiology.

 

                                              And There will be Much Much More………………

 

 

For more details on the speakers planned for each day, please refer to the Grey Bruce Farmers’ Week pages on the Grey Ag website.  If you need detailed information about any of the presentations, or complete bios, that information is also available on the website (www.greyagservices.ca).

Global leaders gather to take action on sustainable livestock production

Livestock are seen as both a source of greenhouse gas emissions and a solution to climate change. To help bring balance, dialogue and understanding to an often-contentious issue, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations last fall hosted the first-ever Global Conference on Sustainable Livestock Transformation. 

Feeding the Future

The agri-food industry is the most important in the world – we all need to eat. Research and innovation have enabled tremendous change in the livestock sector, and we can expect that change to increase in rate.
