A preliminary program for the March 3-4 Growing Sustainable Bioeconomies – Making it Happen conference and exhibition in London, Ontario is now available - Click here to view the program. Many highly regarded experts and leaders in the bioeconomy field will participate in this program, too many to mention here.  Take a moment to look at the program and perhaps you will see why we say that this is a forum you won’t want to miss.
The objective of Growing Sustainable Bioeconomies – Making it Happen is to help develop Ontario’s and Canada’s bioeconomy markets - whether biofuels, biocomposites, biochemicals, bioplastics or other agriculture-based bioproducts.  Growing Sustainable Bioeconomies will explore:

  • How to realize these markets
  • Technologies required and available
  • New research underway
  • Policy drivers
  • Financing challenges and strategies
  • Business development, job creation and other benefits to communities of the bioeconomy

Cattle Handling

Cattle handling is a skill that takes time to hone. The goal of handling cattle is to minimize the stress on the animal. Prolonged stress can make an animal prone to illness. Handlers have a unique appreciation for cattle; they understand the behaviour of animals, allowing them to intuitively predict animal behaviour and move them in a way that leverages the natural instincts (flight zones) of cattle, thus reducing the stress on the cattle.

Government of Canada invests nearly $2 million in migratory bird monitoring and conservation programs

Migratory birds are an important part of Canadian biodiversity. Despite their great adaptability, science shows that migratory bird populations are declining, and this has negative impacts on ecosystem health. The Government of Canada is committed to halting this loss of biodiversity by strengthening protective measures for migratory birds and supporting work with many partners, including other governments, Indigenous peoples, and non-profit organizations.
