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.

Ontario Field Crop Report – Week of September 9, 2019

Farm show season is upon us! As we admire the many types and sizes of farm equipment, most of us would rather ignore the elephant in the room; a lot of new farm machinery is simply too heavy to drive across the field without risking deep, potentially permanent, subsoil compaction.
