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:
Horse Day will deliver an abundance of practical tips and information regarding: Supplementing Your Horse’s Diet, the Importance of Balance; Equine Chiropractic and Rehab Exercises; and Working with Suffolk Punch Draft Horses on the Farm. Plus, hold onto your hat while Sarah Cuthbertson, Owner, Eat Sleep Ride Repeat, shares Travels, Adventure and Horses, about her ultra-endurance races in Mongolia, Iceland and South Africa.
The Equine Youth Program looks outstanding again this year. It will once again consist of all interactive material. Two Youth Champions will be highlighted: Natalia Heinke, from the Blue Mountain Pony Club; and Evy Verschaeve, Southern Ontario Cattle Sorting. The youth will also enjoy some fun and games in our Horse’n Around Sessions. Horsey Crafts will see us making Pop Bottle Hobby Horses. Participants are asked to bring clean, dry, 2L pop bottles.
