Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

We are in the midst of planning GBFW17.  It will run from Jan 4th to Jan 10th.  Beef Day will start us off and then the days will be Dairy, Goat, Sheep, Horse, Ecological and Crops.  GBFW takes place in the Elmwood Community Centre, in Elmwood Ontario.

Farm Safety Testimonials are a powerful part of our speaker and topic rosters.  The opportunity to hear about a producer's close call, makes us sit up and perhaps think about how we do things on the farm. The chance that one life might be saved in the crowd, is one of the reasons that we continue to share these stories.

I need your help. If you know of anyone that has had a farm accident, and would be willing to share their story, please let us know. We appreciate that it is not easy to stand up there and share the circumstances of their accident. We will help and support that producer in any way that we can. There are far too many accidents on the farm. We need to do whatever we can to decrease farm injury and fatality numbers.

If you know of any producer that would be willing to tell his or her story, please let us know.

Thanks everyone!

Bush Hog, first to market with a 10 year limited gearbox warranty

Since 1951, Bush Hog Inc. has built trust with our customers and “reliability” isn’t just a word, it is the foundation of our culture. Bush Hog products have earned the reputation for their durability and ruggedness in the most challenging work environments. This reputation continues today and to demonstrate this, Bush Hog is offering the only 10 Year Limited Gearbox Warranty in the rotary cutter industry. This exciting announcement came at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky this past week.

We take a lot for granted

EIGHT DAYS IN November 2019 taught us lessons that I hope we carry with us for some time. CN Rail train crews went on the longest rail strike in a decade and the ramifications of that strike were felt nationally — throughout agriculture and into other sectors as well. We have had grain service disruptions before, and we have dealt with them, but this was something we didn’t know would happen, and we didn’t foresee the ramifications to grain farming and agriculture until it was happening.
