Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

Just wondering if Mr. Ritz does not have time to discuss farming issues with farmers if us farmers need to make sure Mr. Ritz's rural MP's do not get re-elected. And this comes from someone who has only ever voted conservative.  It appears to me that he does not give a damn about us or agriculture.

Had a two hour talk with him ,a month ago,along with other farmers,from each sector,in Belleville.Arranged by our MP Daryl Kramp.

 

Lloyd, seems to me that is the only way Ritz operates.  Drops in with local MP, select few (usually party faithful) are invited in, tell him what he wants to hear, and he is whisked out again.  I hope you stressed how fragile the CPC support is in rural Ontario with his total neglect of mainstream ON farm issues.

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.
