Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

I saw this event in the Ontag calendar and wondered what others thought of the effectiveness of these meetings?   Are we trying to influence the politicians?  Any other ideas on what else can be done?

Take care,

The Perth County Pork Producers and the Beef Farmers of Perth County are proud to be partners in delivering a unique “Farmers Matter” Town Hall Meeting.  Nov 25 at the Stratford Rotary Complex.

Ontario agricultural pork and beef producers recognize that a strong and targeted event which offers opportunities for constructive dialogue can lead to the development of both effective long-term policies, and immediate short-term solutions to current challenges.

We are inviting local, regional and provincial media to attend and cover the farmers’ stories that have been the catalyst to the creation of this event.

This event has generated great interest from industry professionals, members of the public and farmers who will be attending.
