Event Description

Enjoy 200 exhibitors of agricultural technology and services, woodlot info and demonstrations, crafts, family program, antiques, Queen of the Furrow and more!

As with every industry, farming is subject to increased technological changes and improvements. This year at our match, we will have both days jam packed with both old and new exciting vendors bringing their specialization to our show. This will include educational demonstrations that are used both on and off the farm. It is our aim to provide things of interest to both farmers and the general public to enrich awareness for all. You will see the newest equipment and technological advances that our vendors bring as well.

As always, we will have a fun and exciting program at the Family Tent, where all can come and enjoy many guest speakers, a fashion show and so much more! The active Children’s Tent is always a great place to stop in with the kids to enjoy free crafts and face painting by our volunteers. This year, the Children’s Tent will be actively participating with our Antique Equipment display which aims to demonstrate how equipment and technology has changed over time. We are honoured to have access to so much equipment carefully preserved for generations to come.

ADMISSION: $7.00 ADULTS
Children under 12 FREE

Pre-Harvest Glyphosate

Keep it Clean is reminding Canadian canola, cereal and pulse growers that careful management of preharvest glyphosate applications can help to ensure crops meet the needs of our domestic and export customers. Applying pre-harvest glyphosate too early can result in unacceptable product residues in the grain which can create market risk.

Why farmers rely on cash flow projections

Agriculture is a numbers game. Farmers need to determine a fair land rental price or if their operating line of credit will get them through tight times. While uncertainty around factors such as the weather makes it nearly impossible to know exact revenue and expense numbers, it is possible to get accurate estimates using cash flow projections.
