Event Description

The Ontario Agricultural Sustainability Coalition (OASC) is holding a Town Hall Meeting next Tuesday April 6, 2 PM at the Stratford Rotary Complex, attached is the invitation. Please distribute this information to your members and industry contacts, and encourage them to attend.

The intent is to drive home the OASC message (see www.oasc.ca), and have extensive media coverage, so having a good turnout of farmers is very important. Their will be a number of speakers, and so far they have the Mayor of Stratford opening the event followed by comments from ROMA (Rural Ontario Municipal Association) and SWEA (South West Economic Alliance). A speaker from Hellman’s re: the Hellman’s video is pending as well as a financial speaker on the economic impact of the agriculture sector. Of course a presentation regarding the coalition and Risk Management Plan is also planned, and they are making contacts for a Political Panel for a Question and Answer session.

Although OASC is a coalition of non-supply managed commodities, we are encouraging all commodity producers to show their support. OASC has received strong support from the supply managed commodities and that is very much appreciated.

Again – I urge you to distribute this invitation to your members and contacts in the industry and encourage their participation on April 6th.



Thank you.

Planting corn after a crop of canola is generally not recommended, and the reason why has to do with beneficial fungi living in the soil. However, some studies and anecdotal experience in Ontario have shown that this rotation is not always problematic.
