The premier event in B.C. agriculture W

elcome to the 13th annual Pacific Agriculture Show. It is the largest and most important agricultural exhibition in the province. It is the premier event for B.C.’s agriculture industry, which is unique in its diversity. The show represents all sectors, from dairy to poultry to livestock, and the wide variety of crops grown within the large scope of horticulture. The world is an uncertain place and it’s important for nations to be able to produce as much of their own food as possible, both for ensuring food safety as well as guaranteed supply. The Pacific Agriculture Show is the place to see all the equipment, technologies and techniques critical to ensuring the continued local production of food. Agriculture is an important industry, a strong contributor to a healthy economy, and a valuable part of the community. For the family, there is the antique farm equipment museum, the popular Aldor Acres petting zoo, Raptor’s Ridge Birds of Prey, and the dairy

classroom on Saturday. So whether you are in the ag industry, or just want to see the stateof-the-art farm equipment on display, you will enjoy your time at the show. Jim Shepard Show Producer


PACIFIC AGRICULTURE SHOW - JANUARY 27, 28, 29, 2011

Something for everyone Annual Pacific Agricultural Show features more exhibitors than ever

T

he 13th annual Pacific Agriculture Show is coming to Tradex Jan. 27-29. The three-day showcase features something for every aspect of the agriculture industry. This year’s event offers more exhibitors than ever before and includes a wide variety of programs including:

BC Dairy Expo: The day prior to the start of the Pac Ag Show (Jan. 26) is set aside for the annual dairy tours – again being organized by John Luymes from the BC Ministry of Agriculture. On Thursday, Jan. 27, a one-day dairy program will be offered. It focuses on family-farm succession and its inherent problems. It will be presented by Elaine Froese from Boissevain, Manitoba, an acknowledged expert at helping farm families develop their plans. She tackles the tough issues faced by family businesses in today’s global economy. After Froese, Carla DeGroot from the BC Milk Producers Association will provide an update of the DairyPro dairy technician’s course now underway. This program qualifies participants as dairy technicians in their first year and as herdsmen in the second. Jennifer Woods from Blackie, Alberta, rounds out the morning program in which she will outline the best ways to transport dairy cattle to market and things to remember for a safe and healthy trip for your animals.

Many people in the farming industry come to the Pacific Agricultural Show at Tradex in Abbotsford to see state-of-the-art agricultural machinery.

Once again, registered producers and their wives, family, friends and employees are invited to attend the noon banquet sponsored by Meyers Norris Penny. In the afternoon, concurrent sessions start at 1:15 p.m., with Elaine Froese providing tips in the BMO Room, on how to prevent communications disasters in family businesses, while in the Lobby Room, Dr. Victor Lo, a noted researcher and engineer from UBC, will discuss the latest research developments in phosphorus extraction from liquid dairy manure to create “struvite,” a marketable product. There are four more sessions on Friday (Jan. 28) as part of the agri-energy forum. Renewable energy pricing is

the first session, moderated by Sandy Ferguson from the BC Bio Energy Network. The second session focuses on on-farm anaerobic digestion. Chris Bush from Catalyst Power, Bill Vanderkooi from Bakerview EcoDairy, and Mike Raker with agricultural energy consultants, will address this issue. After lunch, Matt Dickson from the BC Agricultural Research and Development Corporation will guide five speakers as they present their renewable agri-energy technologies. The final session features Kim Ross from Farm Credit Canada talking about financing renewable energy projects. Continued on page 4

Robotic milker to be introduced From Page 5

The Pac-Ag Show is an all-encompassing event that includes the Growers Short Course, BC Dairy Expo, an entire day’s programming of specific interest to greenhouse growers, as well as sessions for potato and field vegetable growers. During the annual trade show, the new Lely’s A4 robotic milker will be introduced. West Coast Robotics is displaying the device, which features the revolutionary Astronaut cow box, a walkthrough design called the I-flow concept. It allows the cow to walk straight in and out of the box, eliminating any unnecessary obstacles, and further reducing the threshold for the cow to enter the unit at her own pace. The spacious cow-friendly design and positioning of the cow unit allows for continuous interaction with the rest of the herd, thus eliminating unnecessary stress on the cow. The Astronaut A4 is set up in a modular concept. A central unit features a vacuum and cleaning system for up to two cow units. It is self-contained and a configuration with two cow units can span a distance up to 30 metres which ensures much more freedom and space for the positioning of the units in the barn. The new Lely Astronaut A4 is filled with technology such as a pump transporting the milk to the tank without the use of rotating impellers which can damage the milk. To reduce downtime as much as possible, key wear parts have been changed into easy-to-replace cartridge systems. This, along with other innovative ideas are part of overall trade show that provides farmers with equipment displays and farming aids to help them meet the challenges of producing food and food products in a safe and sustainable environment.

Forum to explore renewable energy R

enewable energy and farming are a winning combination. Globally, farmers are taking advantage of commercially available renewable energy technologies to harness alternative energy sources. This provides farmers with a longterm source of income, creates jobs and keeps energy dollars in the local economy. Renewable energy also contributes to increased environmental sustainability. The 2011 Agri-energy Forum will explore the different commercially available renewable energy technologies, pricing programs on offer in B.C. and financing options available to those interested in building their own renewable energy facility. This forum will help farmers and others involved with the farming community to understand the potential and opportunity to undertake renewable agri-energy projects that improve farm net incomes while enhancing environmental sustainability. This one-day event will be held on Jan. 28 at the Pacific Agriculture Show in the BMO room.

Investing in innovation T

Q Q Q Q Q Q Q

he Investment Agriculture Foundation of B.C. will be represented at this year’s agricultural show. The foundation strategically invests federal and provincial funds in support of innovative projects to benefit the agri-food industry in British Columbia. Funding is available to help the industry seize new opportunities and deal with emerging issues. Emerging sectors programming was added as a strategic priority at the foundation’s AGM in April 2010. This has allowed it to better understand how to fulfill its mission and assist emerging sectors to adapt, diversify and grow. What is an emerging sector? Emerging sectors are those which have: Q Coming business opportunities Q Leadership, vision and capacity to increase sectoral contributions to the provincial economy Q Provincial five-year annual average market receipts of less than $10 million They are characterized by a potential to introduce new production systems, products, markets, standards, processes, management practices or technologies. They may also be recognized by other characteristics like: Q Lacking in capital and cash Q Capturing niche market opportunities Q Responding to societal or consumer values Q Facing more risk

BMO

Q Bridging or overlapping sectors Q Being driven and innovative Q Building social capital What is the Emerging Sectors Initiative? The Emerging Sectors Initiative (ESI) offers emerging sectors with a single window to access the wide range of funding programs the foundation has available. Its main intent is to enable innovation, collaboration and strategic approaches in emerging sectors to identify opportunities, challenges and priorities. It is the foundation’s vision that support through ESI will

be recognized as a catalyst for the development and sustainability of emerging sectors. Who is eligible? ESI is open to all emerging sectors in the agriculture, agri-food and agribased products industries and also includes those initiatives under the AgriFood Futures Fund that have expired or run out of funding. Some examples are: Q Small scale/lot agriculture Q Natural health products Q Aboriginal agriculture Q Agri-tourism and direct farm marketing

Natural-care agri-based products Bio-products Bioenergy Apiculture Small-scale food processing Women in agriculture Mushroom farming

What types of projects and activities are eligible? Eligible projects will address the gaps in applied scientific knowledge, technology adaptation and transfer, pre-commercialization exploration, skills, business development, collaboration and links with potential partners, in order to seize new business opportunities. When submitting an application for funding, a proposal will need to identify: Q A new business or growth opportunity; Q The needs and strategies to capture that opportunity; Q The major challenges and barriers; Q How the proposed activities will address these challenges and barriers; and Q How this will benefit the agriculture industry and/or Canadians in general ESI is flexible and the foundation will consider appropriate funding ratios according to the project’s priority level, public good, degree of innovation, risk, rate of return, industry engagement and management. For general inquiries about funding, phone: (250) 356-1662 or email funding@iafbc.ca.

Into agriculture for the long run A

s Canada’s leading agriculture lender, Farm Credit Canada is trying to advance the business of agriculture. With a healthy portfolio of more than $19.7 billion and 17 consecutive years of portfolio growth, FCC is strong and stable – committed to serving the industry through all cycles. FCC provides financing, insurance, software, learning programs and other business services to producers, agri-businesses and agri-food operations. FCC employees are passionate about agriculture and committed to the success of customers and the industry. The purpose of the corporation is to enhance rural Canada by providing specialized and personalized business and financial services and products to farming operations, including family farms, and to those businesses in rural Canada, including small and medium-sized businesses, that are businesses related to farming. The primary focus of the activities of the corporation is on farming operations, including family farms. These are exciting times in agriculture as the industry is constantly changing and evolving. From financing to training and software, community programs and knowledge, our commitment to the agriculture industry remains strong.

FCC believes its public policy role permeates everything the company does.

These services help customers make sound business decisions and experience greater success. FCC takes time to get to know customers, their individual needs, goals and vision for the future.
