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 Goat Day, we have asked three producers (2 goat milk producers and 1 meat producer) to give us a Virtual Farm Tour. We will visit their farms without leaving our seats.
Goat Day will continue to share information for both the milk and meat producer. Dr. Kent Charlton, Owner, Durham Veterinary Clinic will deliver an abundance of practical tips when he imparts Healthy Kids Need and Make Healthy Herds.
