WOODSTOCK, ON - Sheep are the newest addition to the livestock offering at the 2010 Canada's Outdoor Farm Show. There are almost 150 sheep and lambs in various displays scattered across the Show Site in Woodstock, Ontario - but no one is counting because there is far too much to see at the 17th edition of Canada's largest agricultural trade show.

"After all these year, I am blown away by all the farm equipment that has arrived here over the weekend," says the Show's Vice-President, Doug Wagner. "By the start of the Show on Tuesday morning, there will be over a billion dollars of equipment and products on this one site - and that's definitely buying power for Ontario Farmers!"

Equipment has been rolling into Woodstock from all over the world - wide track field units from Quebec - tractors from Kansas - a wood burning generator from Washington State that 'excites' water - livestock feeding equipment from Europe - tires from India - and the list goes on.

In fact, Canada's Outdoor Farm Show is the only place in the world where farmers can watch two different robotic milking systems from two different manufacturers working 30 feet apart on two herds of 35 cows each. And then farmers can watch the manure from those cows turned into biogas energy using a mobile anaerobic digester from western Canada.

"If you are involved in agriculture, Canada's Outdoor Farm Show is the place to be this week," adds Wagner. "You really can't believe the magnitude of the technology that is here until you actually see it with your own eyes. It makes you really proud to be involved in farming and agri-business in Canada."

Canada's Outdoor Farm Show runs September 14, 15 & 16, 2010 at Canada's Outdoor Park in Woodstock, Ontario. For details, visit www.OutdoorFarmShow.com or call 1-800-563-5441.

Sulphur Fertilizer Trial in Dry Edible Beans

Sulphur is an important nutrient in field crops. It is part of the chlorophyll in leaves, two essential amino acids, and rhizobia bacteria need it for nitrogen fixation. Sulphur is mostly stored in soil organic matter (OM), and it is mineralized each summer as OM breaks down. Sulphur will leach from the soil and volatilize into the air if crops don’t take it up, which makes soil testing difficult. Sulphur acts a lot like nitrate nitrogen, which has its own soil testing story! Our crops used to get a regular dose of sulphur from air pollution and acid rain, with manure being a good secondary source. Southern Ontario was always a hot spot for air pollution, but levels have dropped dramatically since 1990. This has reduced yearly sulphur deposition by 70% or more. At the same time our crop yields have increased, exporting additional S from the soil.

Temporary Field Storage of Manure In Winter

The opportunity to get bedded-pack cattle manure was too good to pass up. But now as the field in front of me is a sea of white with deep drifts, one question arises, “Where is the best location to temporarily store the manure?”

The Government of Canada Invests in Fishing and Recreational Harbours in southern Ontario

Communities across Canada are supported by small craft harbours that provide the commercial fishing industry with safe and accessible facilities. With approximately 44,000 Canadians employed in this sector, the Government of Canada is making investments to renew its network of small craft harbours and work with municipalities and other stakeholders to enhance local communities.

Government of Canada invests over $50 million to help the agricultural sector address emerging challenges and opportunities

Canada's agriculture and agri-food system contributes over $114 billion to our gross domestic product, and provides safe, nutritious and sustainable food for the world, while creating well-paying jobs for our middle class. The sector is working hard to find innovative approaches to respond to growing domestic and global demand while addressing emerging challenges and maintaining its environmental sustainability.
