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………………
