Seed swindlers arrive with the tease of spring
As the snow thaws during warm spells tempting of spring weather, deer can be spotted braving the fields for an afternoon snack. The herds are sure to keep a close eye on their surroundings and stick to the forest borders in case dangers should arise. This South Stormont field is ripe for the picking and provides a daily buffet to the creatures nearby. Sawyer Helmer photo

Grass-fed milk in Eastern Ontario by Jakob Vogel Dairy Consultant Special to AgriNews
s producers, we Are AlwAys looking for wAys to mAximize our on fArm profits. there Are severAl wAys thAt we cAn do this, mAny of which hAve been discussed At length over the pAst number of yeArs.
The idea of grass-fed products, mostly beef, has been researched for many years and the variable health benefits for consumers have been undeniable. With consumer trends changing and selections for healthier, more wholesome diets being seen across the market place, the recently introduced Grass-fed Milk Program from Dairy Farmers of Ontario (DFO) presents a very interesting opportunity for producers in Eastern Ontario. In short, grass-fed products have shown to have an increased Omega 3 (DHA) content in their fatty acid profile. The health benefits from consuming diets rich in Omega 3, include improved vascular health, lower cholesterol, preventive effects of Alzheimer’s and dementia and rheumatoid arthritis. The goal of this article is not to discuss the health benefits of these diets and whether the benefit is worth it to consumers, but to provide more information to producers who may be interested in joining the program and if the incentive outweighs the dietary restrictions for cows. On Mon., Feb. 5, two DFO representatives spoke with a room full of dairy producers anxiously awaiting more information in regards to a grass-fed program, focusing mostly in Eastern Ontario. The restrictions coming with this program come mainly with feeding management and ingredient selection on farm. As assumed from the name there, the use of silage, for the time being, is completely ruled out, forages that can be used on farm are haylage, baleage, dry hay and pasture (required). Along with this forage requirement shift, supplementation to the cows is also being changed with this program: • No use of full fat soya, micronized beans or roasted soybeans;
• No use of sunflower, safflower, flaxseed or other oilseeds; • Soymeal and canola meal can be used since the oils have been removed; • No use of any palm fat; • No use of distillers (dry or wet); • Grain corn is okay, however the total per cent concentrate of the ration must remain less than 25 per cent on a dry matter basis; • Cows must be pastured for a minimum of six hours a day during the pasture season.
At first glance, the additional requirements would not appear to cause any grief or struggle for producers. However, we need to consider the impact this will have on performances of high-producing dairy cows. The DFO representatives estimated for a 10-15 per cent decrease in production by reducing the grains being fed. The questions that were not answered are the ones not directly related to production: What will be the effect on reproductive perform-
ance when we limit the energy being fed to these cows? Tied in with the above question – what is the implication on possible metabolic issues and health problems? Will there be additional quota or incentive days given for producers in the program similar to the organic program? When considering the significant expected drop in production, the first question that comes to mind is “Is it worth it?”. It is this writer’s opinion that, there are too
many unknowns to have a blanket answer at this point. When evaluating this program, and if it is right for you, your family and your operation, take the time and discuss it with your team of advisors – nutritionists, banker, veterinarian, etc. Some small pointers to keep in mind: • Good forage is always king – higher quality forages will always allow for a lesser concentrate level no matter what. • Amounts of concentrates allowed is all based on
dry matter intake (DMI). Fresh cows should eat more, mid lactation slightly less and stale cows the least. • According to the DFO representatives, they are currently offering $0.08 per L incentives. This is just a starting point – it can and will be re-evaluated. It is very rare that programs are focused to producers in the eastern part of Ontario. This is a great opportunity for producers who are already feeding a haylage (grass)-based diet with access to pasture.

CFFO members told to look out for each other by Tom Van Dusen AgriNews Staff Writer ORRISBURG â€“ WIth the tOpIc
Of depReSSIOn and Mental IllneSS aMOnG faRMeRS GaInInG MORe attentIOn, In WelcOMInG paRtIcIpantS tO the St. laWRenceOttaWa Valley chRIStIan faRMeRS fedeRatIOn Of OntaRIO MeetInG feB. 9, ReGIOnal pReSIdent BRIan VandenBeRG URGed faRMeRS tO keep an eye On theIR neIGhBOURS.
Noting that many farmers and farm families live in semi-isolated situations, Vandenburg urged participants gathered at Morrisburgâ€™s McIntosh Inn to not hold back in offering a hand to someone they might suspect of going through mental health challenges. Thereâ€™s nothing wrong, he suggested, in asking a neighbour behaving differently if everything is alright. Experts have noted that troubled farmers, especially the older generation, are less likely to seek outside help; itâ€™s a stigma that must be resolved, they contend. As farming has evolved into big business relying on
technology, the simpler outdoor lifestyle is disappearing; there are additional mental challenges every day. Organizations like the CFFO are taking a greater interest in the mental health file, pointing out that stress, anxiety, depression, emotional exhaustion and burnout are higher among farmers than other groups. The effects touch families, friends and even the animals that farmers care for. The occasion was the St. Lawrence-Ottawa Valley chapterâ€™s 2018 annual meeting and policy tour, a format followed over the winter months in CFFO county chapters across the province. Hosted by local executive members, the meetings are boosted by federation headquarters staff, notably field service manager Paul Bootsma. About 30 members turned out to hear presentations, including a provincial government update from area MPP Jim McDonell and a chapter treasurerâ€™s report showing a healthy balance of close to $11,000 at the end of 2017. Entitled â€œThe Future of Farmingâ€?, the policy tour took a look at the winds of
change blowing across modern farming, including equipment innovations and how they can improve the bottom line. The main topic was about good old-fashioned drainage, where itâ€™s been and where itâ€™s going, from the perspective of area contractor Albert Zandbergen, owner-operator of Quintan Products Inc. of Winchester. Vandenberg said the talk was timely in light of changes in Ontario fish habitat regulations. Zandbergen refers to himself these days as a â€œLand Improvement Contractorâ€? because he just doesnâ€™t install tile drainage and clean municipal drains, he also clears and grooms land with a full range of GPS-equipped machinery. He estimated that $50million a year is spent on drainage improvements across Ontario. Some 110 contractor licenses have been issued, with about 200 machines working the fields, and an average of $1.5-million invested per business. Annual financial spinoffs are worth up to $7-million, he stated. Zandbergenâ€™s company excavates up to 25 km of
municipal ditches per season, with projects dependent on funding availability and ratepayer demand. Work is done according to engineering plans and, in a drawback noted by Zandbergen, alterations canâ€™t be incorporated on site without expensive and time-consuming reengineering. He suggested most municipal superintendents are competent to approve alterations without any extra engineering. The contractor cited time constraints in getting jobs done in tighter windows brought on by changing weather patterns, including fall flooding where it hasnâ€™t occurred in the past, earlier planting, extended crop seasons and harvesting days, and crops left standing in the field for extended periods of time. Projects can and do continue through the winter but theyâ€™re limited based on overall weather conditions and intermittent thaws. Farmers in the room had little sympathy for standing corn blocking a drainage project â€“ particularly one involving several neighbours â€“ and insisted the culprits should be ordered to remove it. On an agreement or multi-

owner drain improvement, it only takes one hold-out to stall the work. Changing landscapes can alter a drain classification, causing delays, Zandbergen noted. For example, beavers can build a dam, create a pond, and turn a drainage site into a wetland, bringing habitat restrictions that didnâ€™t exist before. As a sign of good drainage in action, Zandbergen recalled severe flooding in South Dundas
Township last November which disappeared within four days. Among difficulties for rural land improvement contractors is acquiring and keeping good seasonal staff for which they usually have to compete with bigger urban companies. Upkeep on machinery, particularly new technology, is another challenge. Yet another is competition from unlicensed operators.

“I am incredibly humbled by this appointment and the outpouring of good wishes I have received from across the province and country and around the world. A steep learning curve is before me, but I am looking forward, with the support of my family, mentors and many friends, to my new role within Canada’s Parliamentary system and to serving the people of Ontario and Canada,” said Black.
“While this means leaving my role as CEO of the Rural Ontario Institute, I am committed to the organization’s success and will be working with the Board and staff over the coming weeks to ensure a seamless transition.” “This appointment is bittersweet for our organization as we will miss his leadership,” stated Suzanne Trivers, ROI Board Chair, in the medFebruary news release.
“We thank Rob for his many years of dedication and passion to the Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program (AALP) preceding the formation of the Rural Ontario Institute and especially for his guidance and stewardship since then. The success of the Institute is certainly a reflection of his abilities and we share his enthusiasm that he will have the opportunity to draw on those abilities in his service to the country.” Over the ensuing days, the Board would be working with Black and the staff on a transition plan while he exits his role as CEO and begins his new position as a member of the Senate of Canada. The Rural Ontario Institute is a non-profit organization committed to developing leaders and facilitating collaboration on issues and opportunities facing rural Ontario.

The EOLC consists of five major partners: the Eastern Ontario Wardens’ Caucus, the Eastern Ontario Mayors’ Caucus, the Eastern Ontario Regional Network, the Ontario East Economic Development Commission, and Community Futures Ontario East. Through three working groups – workforce, technology/innovation, and transportation – the EOLC is implementing its 2014 regional economic development strategy, designed to tackle issues regarding the economic performance of the region, and pursue opportunities to maintain and enhance the region’s economic prosperity. The EOLC was honoured with the Collaboration & Partnership Award in the category of “Regional and Cross-Border Collaboration” representing populations of 250,000 and greater. For an organization
whose work began less than three years ago, this is an important recognition that the EOLC’s collaborative regional model is a progressive step forward in the field of economic development. “The Eastern Ontario Leadership Council is a unique organization in Ontario, founded on the principle of promoting regional economic development in collaboration with the many municipalities and stakeholders across our entire region. Our territory includes more than 110 municipalities, which together represent about 1.2-million residents,” stated EOLC Co-Chair Leslie O’Shaughnessy, Mayor of the City of Cornwall, in the release. “We are extremely proud of the work being done at a regional level, which has recently attracted the attention of the provincial Ministry of Economic Development and Growth. In the near future, Eastern Ontario’s inclusive and collaborative model for economic development could become a model for other regions,” added Co-Chair John Fenik, Warden of the County of Lanark. “The EOLC is extremely eager to continue its work, for the benefit of our region and for economic development everywhere.”

Eastern Ontario Crop Conference continued from page 6 While it was difficult to turn away registrants once the event sold out, the committee is on the fence about searching for another venue. “We have been very well served by the complex [Grenville Community Centre],” said Quesnel. In previous years the conference was held at the college but participants would need to navigate the campus to reach the different sessions. At the community centre, everything is indoors and in the same area. Quesnel also said that the committee liked how central Kemptville is to their participants who come from places like Quebec, Renfrew and central Ontario. It also helps alleviate the pains of rushhour traffic and confusion in a city centre like Ottawa. The committee will gather feedback from participants over the next few weeks to determine the success of this year and how to improve in 2019.

Member of Parliament for London North Centre Peter Fragiskatos spoke on behalf of Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister Lawrence MacAulay at the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association (OSCIA) annual general meeting in mid-February. Fragiskatos announced a federal investment of more than $340,000 to OSCIA for the development of a tool that farmers can use to make more precise decisions on the economic benefits of their individual farm. “Our government is proud to partner with OSCIA on new tools that will help farmers in Ontario reduce the impact of weather and other risks on agriculture production. The goal is to help improve their bottom line and ensure a more stable and profitable agriculture and food industry, creating well-paying jobs and strengthening the middle class,” said Fragiskatos in the news release. The tool will use satellite data of field crops during different weather and soil events and demonstrate the potential benefits of managing water flow from fields
using tile drainage. Mark Emiry, President of OSCIA, added, “On farm fields with shallow slopes, scientists have confirmed that in a drought year, holding the water back by restricting the outflow with valves at the end of tile drains, corn yield can be increased by as much as 25 per cent. Our analysis has confirmed that the economic payback from adoption of controlled tile drainage benefits can range from $18-$48 per hectare per year. In addition, nitrate-N and phosphorus output from tiles can also be reduced, calculated to be worth over $25 per ha in nutrient savings, certainly a win for improved water quality as well.” This investment was provided through the AgriRisk Initiatives program under Growing Forward 2, a federal, provincial, territorial initiative. The Canadian Agricultural Partnership is a five-year, $3billion investment by federal-provincial and territorial governments, which will strengthen the agriculture, agri-food and agri-based products sector, ensuring continued innovation, growth and prosperity. The Partnership will replace Growing Forward 2 in April 2018. Under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, producers will continue to have access to a robust suite of Business Risk Management (BRM) programs to help manage significant risks that threaten the viability of their farm and are beyond their capacity to manage. Changes to the BRM programs agreed to in July 2017, will come into effect for the 2018 program year.

That observation from accountant Theresa Wever came during the second Sprouting New Connections workshop held Feb. 1, at North Glengarry Community Centre in Alexandria. With offices in Russell and Vankleek Hill, Wever was one of the main speakers at the successful event intended to help small rural businesses gain financial traction in an era when customers are looking at what’s available closer to home. The most successful farm transfers occur when owners have off-farm income, Wever emphasized; the farm business has to bring in enough money to cover expenses while buying out the retiring owners. Of 78 per cent of small business owners who plan to sell only 30 per cent have a plan, she stated. She encouraged farm owners contemplating retirement to develop a detailed plan of action during slower times such as the winter months. She pointed out that farm transfers become less successful through the generations. Wever underscored three key areas of transfer – ownership, management and labour – emphasizing that family dynamics must be sorted through. She also called for an estate plan and a will to help make the process that much easier. Regional food and agriculture development officer Gina Dragone said the second Sprouting New Connections event was enough of a success to warrant a third edition this spring. The workshops are organized by the Food and Agriculture Advisory Council for Cornwall, Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, and the Mohawk Nation of Akwesasne. About 50 people attended the halfday speaker and panel series which ended with a kale salad and pork sandwich lunch catered by the local Quirky Carrot Café. Other speakers on the roster included Doreen Ashton Wagner, Rose
D’Amato, senior account manager with the Business Development Bank of Canada, and Candy Pollard, consultant with the Cornwall Business Centre. Operator of locally based Forloveandbusiness.com which counsels female entrepreneurs; it was Ashton Wagner who caused the biggest stir. If you’re a female entrepreneur, love has a lot do to with your business, she stated. As traditional caregivers, love is part of a women’s DNA, even their business DNA. “It’s the love-versusbusiness-trap that keeps us frustrated and stressed. While our caring nature makes us great collaborators and community-builders, it can hold us back. It makes us hang on to toxic clients, prevents us from firing bad employees, stops us from charging the fees we deserve, keeps us saying yes when we should be saying no, and pushes us to the brink of burnout.” She cited statistics indicating that women fall behind men both in confidence levels and risk-taking ability. That tendency, she said, should be recognized, for example, when parents are handing down the farm to a daughter who might not have the same level of confidence as a son. She underscored what she called the “impostor syndrome” which “messes with the mind”, causing female entrepreneurs to “lose their mojo” by questioning that they actually belong in a competitive environment. Her comments brought a challenge from one woman who suggested times have changed and Ashton Wagner’s view is obsolete. Another participant, Lianne Acres-Hanna, event MC, entrepreneur, and dairy farm partner, said later that she, for one, had never felt like an impostor or suffered from a lack of confidence. Times are changing, Ashton-Wagner agreed. In fact, according to a 2015 study, women are now choosing self-employment and launching businesses at a rate 1.5 times faster than men. But there’s still a way to go until women catch up in the business world. “This isn’t about ‘growing balls’ or denying our feminine approach. It’s about establishing healthy boundaries. It’s about hon-
ouring our natural inclinations so we can lead happy fulfilled lives.” From left, Theresa Wever, Candy Pollard, Rose D'Amato, and Doreen Ashton Wagner are pictured at the second Sprouting New Connections workshop held Feb. 1, at North Glengarry Community Centre in Alexandria. Van Dusen photo

89th for UCFO Confirmed for another three years as the accepted general purpose agricultural lobby group representing French-speaking farmers, lâ€™Union des cultivaterurs franco-ontariens is planning its 89th annual conference in Alfred, March 22-23. The confirmation allows UCFO to continue receiving funding as part of the Farm Business Registration program that supports the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario, and National Farmers Union. Under FBR, farm operations earning more than $7,000 annually are required to check off which of the organizations they choose to help finance; UCFO gets 1.5 per cent of the allocations. So while the French-language group based at Clarence Creek isnâ€™t exactly formally recognized, itâ€™s accepted and backed by the province along with English-language organizations. UCFO general manager Simon Durand calls the three-year reaffirmation a clear indication that his group is fulfilling its mandate â€œdespite our limited resources.â€? To be held on what became a CitĂŠ CollĂŠgiale campus after it was abandoned by the University of Guelph, the UCFO meeting in Alfred will cover a wide range of topics and activities, including annual presentation of the coveted Pierre Bercier Award for Agricultural Excellence, this year to Denis and Lyse Perrault of Navan, noted dairy farmers and winery operators. Election will be held of a new president to replace Marc LaflĂ¨che who said he was gratified over the past eight years to see UCFOâ€™s influence grow. Keynote speaker will be Jean-Philippe Gervais, chief agricultural economist with Farm Credit Canada, and a Statistics Canada report will examine the status of francophone agricultural workers in Ontario; several other speakers will also be on hand. The annual banquet to be held at the nearby Plantagenet community centre will be the icing on the cake of whatâ€™s expected to be another successful conference by an organization that consistently delivers the goods in the maternal language of many Ontario farmers.
Cricket ticket We desperately wanted to be there. Alas, our calendar conflicted with the Feb. 15 Canada Agriculture and Food Museum lecture, â€œCricket Farming: A New Source of Protein.â€? How could you resist such Ag Museum come-ons as thinking â€œoutside the lunchboxâ€?, â€œWould you like crickets with that?â€?, and â€œFind out what all of the buzz is about.â€? Think of the reduction in acreage required in cricket farming, not to mention minimal feed, equipment, housing, and other inputs. And how could you resist cricket patty with sardines, macaroons made with roasted whole crickets, or cricket powder blueberry crumble muffins? As a quick snack, how about barbecue, chili lime or honey mustard crickets? And bug supplements can also be mixed into livestock feed. The selections are on the website for Entomo Farms of Norwood, Ont., where brothers Darren, Ryan and Jarrod Goldin operate 60,000 square feet of cricket production. And if crickets arenâ€™t the ticket, the brothers can set you up with mealworms, waxworms or super worms. The concept of lunching on crickets and other bugs wasnâ€™t just portrayed as a cutesy, quirky fad. Ag Museum guest speaker Darren Goldin described it as an emerging food trend representing a great source of protein and a possible solution to food sustainability issues around the world. Crispy insects already feed about two billion people a day; eaten whole, mushed into powders and pastes, insects are an important source of protein, vitamins and minerals. In fact, edible insects were named one of the top food trends last year. Entomo Farms wants nothing less than to be respected worldwide for leading the â€œinsect protein revolutionâ€? as well as an authority on the dissemination of insect farming methods. Letâ€™s all raise our super green cricket powder kale smoothies in a toast to that!
Trash talk 2018 Here we are two months into the New Year and the Edwardsburgh/Cardinal dump controversy doesnâ€™t seem to have moved forward much since this time in 2017. If anything, the two sides have become more entrenched, particularly the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville which appears determined to make a buck off an idle landfill location known as ED-19 despite the mood of most local ratepayers who donâ€™t want the unnecessary facility in nearby farm country. Itâ€™s unnecessary because the counties never pressed the site into service in the 20 years since they got provincial approval for it. Now they want to sell it to commercial interests whoâ€™ll have to import garbage to make it work financially. Opposing forces have enjoyed some successes in pushing back, including persuading the province to temporarily suspend approval for construction or operation of a dump at 165-acre ED-19 because the original go-ahead is now an antique. When the news came, E/C Councillor Michael Barrett, who with area MPP Steve Clark and Citizens Against the Dump led the charge against the possible project, stated the community had demonstrated it isnâ€™t for sale to â€œBig Garbage.â€? Perhaps he had a premonition but Barrett cautioned that the battle isnâ€™t over and that pressure must be kept on provincial and municipal politicians: â€œLetâ€™s get ready for the next round.â€? The heartening decision was contained in the provincial Environmental Registry. Operation of a landfill at ED-19 couldnâ€™t be undertaken â€œuntil such time that the owner confirms that the conditions, assumptions and circumstances that were made in the EA are still applicable, and that the proposed landfill design is still appropriate.â€? As already mentioned, the Environmental Assessment in question was granted 20 years ago. The next round came quickly. Rather than accept

by Tom Van Dusen the requirement to do the right thing by re-certifying that the EA is still valid, the counties appealed the decision to suspend the original certificate in its madcap rush to sell the site as a commercial mega dump. An appeal pre-hearing to determine ground rules and who can appear will be held before the Environmental Review Tribunal at Brockville City Hall on March 12. The full-blown hearing will come this summer; Citizens Against the Dump want formal status and deserve to be part of the process, presenting evidence and witnesses; the group has noted that itâ€™s somewhat limited by the fact it has to fundraise to represent its 1,400 members while the counties has open access to taxpayersâ€™ money. Opposition to development of ED-19 began to build after residents learned that negotiations were underway to sell the site to Tomlinson Environmental of Ottawa. While talks had been dormant, counties council decided last September to reopen them. Many E/C residents were concerned that transfer to Tomlinson could lead to opening of a mega dump, with trash drawn in from urban centres across the province. The site was set aside in 1998 to meet E/Câ€™s and the countiesâ€™ future needs. While he supported the plan at first, E/C Mayor Pat Sayeau turned against it after he read the mood of ratepayers and has been busy trying to sway a majority of his colleagues at the counties level. The main bone of contention has been the fact that plans have been advancing based on a 20-year-old approval which MOECC originally ruled was still Continued on page 10

OFA hosts joint Queenâ€™s Park event on economic development priorities
oronTo â€“ Four provincial organizaTions shared Their voices aT Queenâ€™s park, on Feb. 21, To sTrengThen The message To all poliTical candidaTes ThaT invesTmenTs in rural communiTies oFFer beneFiTs To all onTarians. The onTario FederaTion oF agriculTure (oFa), TogeTher wiTh The onTario chamber oF commerce, easTern onTario wardensâ€™ caucus and wesTern onTario wardensâ€™ caucus made a joinT announcemenT on The value oF spreading FuTure economic developmenT dollars across The province.
OFAâ€™s election campaign â€“ Producing Prosperity in Ontario â€“ is encouraging greater investment in Ontarioâ€™s agri-food sector and rural communities to deliver economic growth and prosperity for all Ontarians. â€œOntarioâ€™s agri-food sector is an economic powerhouse for the province, and we are encouraging the government to make greater investments in agri-food and rural communities as a sustainable and effective way to deliver growth and prosperity for all Ontarians,â€? said OFA President Keith Currie, in the release. â€œWe have a strong collective voice on this position, announcing our partnership here today with organizations that represent the interests of Ontario businesses and communities in rural and urban areas across the province as part of our Producing Prosperity in Ontario election campaign.â€? Rocco Rossi, President and CEO of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, reiterated that â€œonly bold action and leadership can strengthen
Ontarioâ€™s position in the global economy. Ontario must leverage its existing strengths for a long-term vision for prosperity for the province.â€? Â Eastern and Western Wardensâ€™ Caucuses represent more than 400 communities across the province that need greater access to infrastructure investments for broadband, affordable energy, transportation, as well as education and medical facilities. â€œThe role of the province is to help our rural communities invest in improving social and economic conditions to ensure our communities have the services and support they need to grow,â€? said Robin Jones, Chair of the Eastern Ontario Wardensâ€™ Caucus. â€œWe fully support OFAâ€™s initiative to focus on new investments in rural communities that will assist existing businesses, attract new companies, and boost opportunities for residents and regional economic development,â€? said Gerry Marshall, Chair of the Western Ontario Wardensâ€™ Caucus. The partnership announced in February in support of OFAâ€™s Producing Prosperity in Ontario campaign demonstrates the collective support that exists across the province to secure future investments for Ontario that benefit urban and rural areas. â€œWe believe that spreading the investment dollars around the province is the solution to ongoing challenges that face rural and urban communities, and hold the promise of improving the quality of life for all Ontarians,â€? said Currie.Â The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) is the largest general farm organization in Ontario, represent-
ing 37,000 farm families across the province. As a dynamic farmer-led organization based in Guelph, the OFA works to represent and champion the interests of Ontario farmers through government relations, farm policy recommendations, research, lobby efforts, community representation, media relations and more. OFA is the leading advocate for Ontarioâ€™s farmers and is Ontarioâ€™s voice of the farmer.

Trash talk 2018 continued from page 9 valid. Opponents insisted a reassessment was needed according to todayâ€™s standards. Last fall, Clark grilled MOECC Minister Chris Ballard in the Legislature, challenging him to â€œget off the sidelinesâ€? and confirm no landfill would open at ED-19 based on a â€œstale-datedâ€? permit. Clark cited compelling reasons for pulling the plug including that there have been changes in site conditions, E/C has declared itself an unwilling host, and approvals were granted on the basis of a municipal landfill for local waste, not a private operation taking in refuse from everywhere. In addition, Clark reminded the minister the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne is against a commercial dump partly because it was never consulted as required by the Constitution. â€œThings like water levels and drainage can change over 20 years,â€? said Akwesasne Grand Chief Abram Benedict. â€œWeâ€™re concerned about the environmental impact.â€? Should the sale and eventual commercial landfill go ahead according to a past-due approval, Clark said that outcome would be â€œunprecedentedâ€?. He called on Ballard to exercise his authority to scrap the â€œhistoricâ€? approval and order a new assessment. Thatâ€™s what happenedâ€Ś and the plot continues to thicken!

Often thought of lastly by consultants and producers alike, calves hold the key to the future success of modern day dairy farms. After several years and copious amounts of research being invested into research and the development of calf feeding regimens, environment requirements and weaning protocols to yield the best performances from our calves, it all comes down to one simple question: “Where do we start?” Take a step back and realize calves are like
young children; their job is to have fun, play with their friends and grow. The key message here is this: reduce the stress on your calves and this will lead to better results. The main pillars for calves are simple: • Colostrum needs to be clean, free of bacteria and other pathogens. It has to be delivered at the right time and in the right amounts. • Weaning: Using a step-down weaning program has been repeatedly shown to increase the consumptions of dry grains and facilitate the weaning process. When weaning calves, we want to reduce the “weaning lag” that we often see when calves lose weight at weaning when they should be growing steadily. • Environment: We need fresh air! It is much easier said than done. It is all too common to walk into a calf area/nursery and all smells fresh – but – have you knelt down to smell the same air as your calves? I recommend everyone to walk into
their calf pen and just get on their level and then assess the air quality. Don’t be afraid to fog your calf nursery. When it comes to air quality and calves, there should be no compromise. It is better to know the truth then live with our heads in the sand. If we are questioning the air exchanges happening in the nursery, we have a solution, which is readily available to us all. Along with the “young children” analogy, calves who play a lot also need a nice dry place to rest. In a perfect world, the bedding would be deep enough to allow for nesting behaviour to happen. • Nutrition: When we break down the “nutrition” pillar to calf rearing, we need fresh clean water, access to fresh feed and enough milk solids to keep them full while meeting their protein and energy requirements. From what I see on farm, in order for things to be added to our routine, it has to be easy. It will not always be easy for the person taking care of the
calves so all protocols need to be made simple so that little to no mistakes are made. Find ways such as the use of a whiteboard mounted in the calf area/nursery to easily track and monitor the animals that are present.
Attention to detail is key. Often times, calves can benefit just by changing the person in charge of them. No one would hire a plumber to wire up a barn, so why would you have someone monitoring calves who cannot tell the difference between a sick calf and a healthy one? Investing in your
calves can be a hard thing to justify since the return will not be seen for roughly two years down the road. However, with programs such as the LifeStart Audit, developed from Shur-Gain, we can easily prioritize and get the ball rolling for the big question of “Where do we start?”

OFA asks members for feedback on wildlife compensation program
OFA commentary by Pat Jilesen, Director Ontario Federation of Agriculture
overnment consultations beGan [in the first week of
february] for ontarioâ€™s wildlife damaGe compensation proGram. the proGram provides financial compensation to producers whose livestock, poultry or honey
bees are damaGed or killed by wildlife.
new proGram Guidelines
were introduced last year that have created problems for livestock producers makinG claims and municipal investiGators who are responsible for investiGatinG claims.
The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) has heard clearly that a similar program is needed for crop and horticulture producers to provide compensation for damage caused by wildlife. Crop insurance is not a sufficient tool to address this type of damage. However, this review is focused on improving the existing wildlife damage program for livestock producers. Ontarioâ€™s Wildlife Damage Compensation Program is important to livestock producers and OFA is participating in the government consultations by addressing concerns with the new guidelines. To help us deliver the most effective feedback weâ€™re asking OFA members for help. OFA has been working with livestock groups to address issues with Ontarioâ€™s Wildlife Damage Compensation Program,
but we need to hear from members to learn more about your experiences with the claims process and the preventative measures youâ€™re taking to deter predators. OFA member experiences, examples and reports will help us make our case to the government in an effort to make necessary changes. If youâ€™ve participated in the Ontario Wildlife Damage Compensation Program or have experience managing wildlife and the costs associated with this task, weâ€™d love to hear from you. Please share your experiences by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. OFA is aware that the biggest problems facing Ontario livestock producers are the strict requirements under the new guidelines for investigators to prove that an animal was killed or injured from an eligible predator. This has led to a sharp increase in the number of producer claims that have been denied. We know itâ€™s not the need to provide evidence of predation that Ontario livestock producers are disputing, itâ€™s the standards of proof under the current program guidelines that are creating problems and they need to be expanded. OFA together with Ontario livestock groups have put together recommendations to restore producer and municipal investigator confidence in the program and will be presenting that through the governmentâ€™s consultation process. In the meantime, we encourage OFA members to share their experiences to help us build our case together to make program and policy changes to make Ontarioâ€™s Wildlife Damage Compensation Program more effective for everyone.

TOpiC SeT The Theme fOr The dAy.
Speaking after the welcome from Michael Hoffort, President and CEO of Farm Credit Canada, which created the event, Simmons pointed out some of the issues in public perception which
damage the credibility of science, including the science of agri-business. Using the oft-quoted projection of 9.5-billion people by 2050, he said agriculture and innovation are needed more than ever. He stated one in three persons worldwide gets the wrong nutrition, and he displayed headlines which frighten consumers about their food but donâ€™t give useful information. In order to reinvent the agrifood industry the challenges are: to be proactive, courageous leaders, not reactive; bring collaboration across the industry sectors, rather than a siloed approach; and encourage innovation, inclusion and positive differentiation, rather than an antiinnovation attitude. This includes innovation in public perception
AG funding Continued from page 24 should also help get science from the lab and into the field as quickly as possible. Examples he used were a food processor installing new high-tech equipment to grow its business and boost farmersâ€™ sales, or programs could support new technology for growing vegetables in Northern Canada, which would open new business opportunities and strengthen food security for the North. The programs will have a new and fresh focus on public trust, diversity, and regional collaboration. According to a survey commissioned by his department last March, 91 per cent of Canadians who responded said they trust information coming from farmers and ranchers. The new partnership will be the first policy framework to explicitly recognize support public trust as a priority in agriculture. He praised the Ag More than Ever campaign and similar other campaigns for doing a great job of getting the message out through social media. â€œWe will help farmers tell Canadians about the great things they are doing to grow safe, high-quality food; care for their animals; and safeguard our environment.â€? The programs are also breaking new ground with a strong focus on diversity, so the Government will reach out to women,
approaches. â€œFood has never been more personal,â€? he said and pointed to the specific markets, not just for a general â€œorganicâ€? label, but sustainably sourced, vegan, gluten-free, low-fat, low sugar, non-GMO, all-natural ingredients, etc. That isnâ€™t the only issue however. â€œAnimal welfare and sustainability are important global trends,â€? he said. But he believes consumer skepticism creates an opportunity to disrupt perceptions. One approach, Simmons said, is One Health â€“ a concept that healthy animals, healthy humans and healthy planet are all necessary. At a One Health summit held in Washington, D.C., 34 producers and processors signed a statement supporting the United Nations General Continued on page 14
Indigenous communities and young people. â€œItâ€™s important that we remove any barriers that are preventing these groups from taking up a leadership role in the sector,â€? he explained. â€œFor example, funding would be available to help young farmers strengthen their leadership skills to take the industry into the future. Or it could help Indigenous peoples get access to programs. And for the first time, the partnership includes measures that enable provinces and territories to increase collaboration on regional initiatives to address common challenges and priorities, including environment, climate change and innovation.â€? He urged conference attendees to go online and take a look at the new programs, and see where thereâ€™s a fit for a business or an organization. He closed by saying the future of the industry has never been brighter. â€œThe global middle class is growing, and they are hungry for our top-quality food. There is a world of opportunity out there for Canadian farmers and food processors. We have the resources â€“ our productive farmland and our fresh, clean water. We have the know-how, right across Canada â€“ and right here in this room. And with the new programs available today under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, we have the tools we need. Thatâ€™s a winning combination to keep Canadian agriculture out in front.â€?

Ag day theme Continued from page 13 Assemblyâ€™s call to action regarding global antimicrobial resistance, in which they agreed, â€œWe will work across the global protein chain and the health systems to address this critical societal needâ€Śâ€? They identified five priorities they would undertake: 1. Develop global standards of responsible antibiotic use in livestock; 2. Support elimination of the use of shared-class antibiotics for growth promotion purposes globally, regardless of whether they are allowed by local regulations; 3. Continue to identify new and better ways to care for animals to enhance animal welfare and reduce the need for antibiotics , including fostering an environment that stimulates innovation; 4. Support increasing veterinary training and capacity, particularly in developing countries, to ensure proper
use of antibiotics and other tools; and 5. Improve antimicrobial resistance monitoring and reporting, so we can accurately identify issues and track progress against resistance. He said using the principles of One Health puts forth a positive platform, adds credibility, broadens connections and resonates with consumers. Then he talked at length about the need, not for raising more animals, but for more protein, including non-traditional protein sources like pulses. He said the industry can meet the increased protein demand while giving consumers what they want. The big question, he said, is, are we listening to the consumer or are we leading the consumer with lazy marketing? He pointed out that accelerated negative claims have reached a tipping point, and they are, well, negative. Claims of no salt, GMO-free
www.agrinews.ca protein, no antibiotics ever, vaccine-free, no irradiation, and many others, results in eliminating innovation for the sake of short-term marketing. â€œThe animal loses, the environment loses and the consumer loses.â€? Completely antibiotic-free chicken farms, for example, have an increased mortality â€“ resulting in a demand to raise more birds. All these negative categories limit demand, even as supply is ramping up. Examples included oversupply of cage-free eggs, organic milk and antibiotic-free chicken, resulting in lowering
prices and revenue for the producer. (He used headlines from American media publications, however, and the United States does not have supply marketing like Canada does.) He addressed avoiding negative marketing. â€œMake yes the new no,â€? he said, using examples of phrases like more protein, better taste, more sustainable, and more economical. In conclusion, he said resetting for the future means having the courage to speak boldly, about a compelling platform, using innovation as positive differentiation.
Jeff Simmons, the CEO of Elanco Animal Health, gave the first keynote presentation at the Canadaâ€™s Agriculture Day conference in Ottawa on Tues., Feb. 13. He talked about speaking in a bold, innovative way to address consumer perceptions.

cAnAdA’s AgriculTure dAy cOnference On Tues., feb. 13. Al-Katib said protein is a key driver of agricultural markets. “We have to embrace plant-based proteins, or we won’t make our targets,” he said and explained how diverse Saskatchewan has become in its crop production, with many kinds of peas and beans, chickpeas, lentils, as well as wheat – including durum wheat, canola, and others. “We aren’t a one-crop producer.” He quoted Steven Poloz, Governor of the Bank of Canada, who said, “The global trend toward urbanization is likely to continue. With it will come growing demand
for goods linked to household consumption — particularly agricultural products. Consider the hundreds of millions of people who are climbing the income scale in India and China. Their changing diet implies much more than just stronger demand for traditional protein sources. It also implies demand for inputs such as fertilizer, animal feed, fish feed, oilseeds and specialty crops such as lentils and chickpeas. Indeed the latest traffic figures from Port Metro Vancouver show a sharp growth in shipments of wheat and specialty crops, and solid gains in meat, poultry and potash. Following the theme of the conference, Al-Katib talked about other export issues, saying, “Agriculture is important, but it’s also one of the most politicized industries in the world.” He said this is even though consumer preferences are driving markets, both locally and abroad, particularly in Asia. “We’re the largest supplier of legumes to India, with 40 per cent,” he said, but he cautioned that recently added high tariffs, up to 50 per cent, were interfering with that market. “But that’s temporary. They’re
protecting their farmers now, but soon they will need to import again.” His company is a producer of food ingredients, and a global leader in pulse, staple food, and food ingredient processing and distribution, with facilities in Canada, the United States, Turkey, Australia, China, South Africa, India and in Europe. It reported $1.6-billion in sales in 2016 and employs about 2,000 staff around the world, so Al-Katib has a good handle on world markets for plant protein. “We can scale niche opportunities in pulse,” he said. “The crops are high-protein, high-fibre, low-allergen, have low energy requirements, are waterefficient, work best with zero-tillage, and are nitrogen fixers, so they improve the soil.” He also stressed Canada’s technical skills, labour force, and infrastructure, which he says will improve – particularly rail transport. “What we need to produce specific strategies are infrastructure support, market access, talent, innovation, and regulations that work.” He praised Canada’s attributes, such as abundant freshwater, long coastlines,
the least densely occupied arable land in the world; a strong network of research and development facilities and universities; a sophisticated, ethnically diverse consumer base; early adoption of technology; reliable access to capital and to inputs like fertilizer, fuel and seed; the lowest use of pesticides per hectare; political stability and goodwill that encourages foreign investment; and last but definitely not least, strong primary and secondary processing sectors. Barriers to the industry in Canada include an underdeveloped value chain which only processes 50 per cent of agriculture output, and lack of investment in processing infrastructure; low productivity and the inability to achieve economies of scale in some sectors, productivityenhancing technologies limited by rural bandwidth, and government spending on risk management rather than those technologies; trade barriers like the lack of preferential trade agreements with three of the five biggest markets – China, India and Japan, and the uncertainty around several trade agreements including CETA, NAFTA and the TPP; and

The message of Murad Al-Katib, President of AGT Food and Ingredients Inc. and Chair of the Agri-Food Economic Strategy Table, is that Canada can lead globally in the agri-food industry. He delivered that message at the Canada’s Agriculture Day conference in Ottawa on Tues., Feb. 13. Courtesy photo
growing regulatory obstacles with trade to the U.S. These barriers have a significant effect on the Canadian economy. Gross farm receipts totalled $69.4-billion in 2015 (a 4.7 per cent increase since 2010). Farms are getting larger and farmers are getting older. Farms have to, and are, reacting to the changing
needs of food production. In Saskatchewan, for example the most basic of production industries – agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting – have made up about 11 per cent of the province’s real gross domestic product. Al-Katib builds a strong case for increasing food processcontinued on page 16

The industry accounts of 17 per cent of total manufacturing shipments and two per cent of the GDP. It is the countryâ€™s largest manufacturing employer, with 246,000 employees. It supplies threequarters of all processed food and beverages in Canada. It is the producersâ€™ largest buyer of their production. The Canadian processed food and beverage industry stood at $27.8billion in exports in 2014. He stated Canada could double its processed food exports by 2027, an opportunity worth $19-billion. Besides being CEO of AGT

He talked about new technologies on the farm, as well as technologies adopted by Richardson-Pioneer, such as the ownership of 59 full service elevators, all modern terminals which have replaced the old wooden crib elevators on the prairies.
Foods, Al-Katib is also the chair of the Agri-Food Economic Strategy Table. It is one of six strategy tables set up by the federal government in 2017. In last yearâ€™s budget the government announced â€œa new vision for Canadaâ€™s economy as a global leader in innovation. Part of the plan included six economic strategy tables to support innovation in advanced manufacturing, clean technology, digital industries, health/bio-science, clean resources, and agri-food. The Agri-Food Table was convened to take advantage of market opportunities by positioning Canadaâ€™s agrifood and agriculture sectors for long-term growth. It is a model for industry - government collaboration and is focused on turning Canadaâ€™s economic strengths into global advantages. Each of
the tables are chaired by industry leaders who are tasked with setting ambitious growth targets, identifying sector-specific challenges and bottlenecks, and laying out an actionable roadmap to achieve the set goals. Al-Katib said his Agri-Food Table is looking at infrastructure requirements, market access, talent, innovation and regulation, as mentioned above, in order to produce specific strategies. The group plans to deliver a report by June or July and there will be lots of followup, so there will also be opportunities for producers to give input. He finished by comparing his industry to the Olympics. â€œWeâ€™re in a race. Weâ€™ve trained. We did our tests. We have a good coach. And we feel good about where weâ€™re going in this sector.
â€œTheyâ€™re built for speed, efficiency and logistical compatibility,â€? he said. â€œThey can load or unload completely in 24 hours or less.â€? Recently Richardson invested $150-million in a terminal facility in Vancouver to improve speed and efficiency of grain movement and sales for Canadian farmers. â€œThe facility receives products from 2,000 miles inland, cleans and grades, and loads vessels. Weâ€™ll turn the space in that elevator 50 to 60 times a year â€“ more than once a week.â€? He appeared to be very enthusiastic about the broad diversity of Canadian crops, not only the large-scale crops like canola and wheat, and used oats as an example. â€œCanada produces 3-3.5-million acres of oats per year,â€? he said. â€œThis doesnâ€™t sound like much compared to some of our other outputs, but it represents 65 per cent of the total oat acreage in North America.â€? He went on to say that oats were a pure food, which is sometimes overlooked but the potential is large. â€œWe have an oat milling plant in Sioux City, Nebraska. It is globally competitive and driven by Canadian oats.â€? He said Richardson isnâ€™t only a buyer, but is also in the inputs end of the business and in recent years has seen many technological changes there too. â€œAgronomics which are very precise are redefining the industry,â€? he said, discussing automated smart communication systems. â€œYouâ€™re inputting the crop in

Getting a truck out there with seed or fertilizer within a few minutes, not a few hours, can make all the difference.â€? He also pointed to the increased visibility of the science of agrology. â€œTen years ago there were a few agrologists with the company,â€? he said. â€œNow we have 80 agrologists.â€?

AgrICulTure dAy COnferenCe AT The WesTIn hOTel In OTTAWA On Tues., feb. 13. Carla Ventin is a Senior Vice-president of Government Affairs at Food and Consumer Products of Canada and moderated the session. Her organization represents 100 food and consumer product manufacturing companies. Panel participants were Dr. Christine Daugherty, Vice-president of Global Agronomy Solutions at PepsiCo, and Darrell Jones, President of Save-On-Foods. The group discussed the recent identification by the Canadian Government of agri-food as an industry, about how food choices have become personal in society and the need to do a better job of telling Canadian consumers the story of what happens to food crops after they leave the farm gate. Said Daugherty, “We process 25 crops which are sourced in 60 countries, from potatoes to chickpeas to coconuts. She mentioned several Canadian crops which PepsiCo buys, such as wheat, sugar beets, potatoes, tomatoes, corn, and stressed how important Canadian farmers are to PepsiCo’s operations. “Pretty much all of the oats we use are sourced in Western Canada.” She then made the audience laugh when she presented a bag of
ketchup-flavoured potato chips to Jones. For his part, Jones first congratulated the large number of students and youth at the conference (estimated by AgriNews to be about half the assembly). In Canada, his company operates 163 stores from Vancouver Island to Winnipeg. During the conference there had been a lot of talk about consumer misperceptions about food, to which he said, “It’s not misperceptions but lack of knowledge of real facts about products. We need to separate misinformation from information, and retailers need information on products.” Daugherty said that there is a perception that big is bad. “We’re big, we’re global, but we want to make sure our large scale farmers to our small scale farmers have the resources to improve.” She described the company’s philosophy as global impact, local influence. “Can we engage with farmers on water management?” she asked, then described how precision agriculture helped reduce waste of water and inputs, using an example of using technology to move from flood to drip irrigation. Another discussion point was the amount of money Canadian consumers spend on eating out, an estimated 30 per cent of average household food budgets is now spent in restaurants, having a profound impact on all aspects of agri-food. Said Jones, “In the stores we’re building today we have big restaurant sections, big hot meals sections that you can eat-in or take home. We’ve found it is critical that these products
Richardson-Pioneer Continued from page 16 Another ongoing project with Richardson is the Kelburn Farm in Manitoba. “After the Red River flooding we turned 550 acres into a research farm.” The farm uses applied science, is home to programming like the Canola Learning Centre, Agriculture in the Classroom, the Amazing Ag Adventure, among others. “We’re demystifying commercial agriculture for urban school kids.” He reported a partnership with Ducks Unlimited, working on land sustainability, dealing with water moving on and off the property, which is right beside the Red River. “We want to be better stewards of this wonderful gift.” Richardson has another 440-acre research farm just outside Regina, Sask. which Richardson invested $30million in, which will open later this year, and will have an innovation centre built in the future. “We need to encourage others in our industry to show the public what potential we have. Increasingly consumers want clarity,” he said. “We need to keep our high reputation intact. Canada has the highest likelihood of meeting consumers’ expectations.”
must be as good as restaurant quality.” Then he talked about e-commerce and home delivery, including through companies like Amazon. “For example, we deliver to the door – even put the food in the cupboard if that’s the service that’s needed. In a few years we’ll be able to deliver hot food. It’s part of giving customers what they want, on their terms.” Contuinued on page 18

Multinational Food Continued from page 17 Daugherty agreed. “In general, sitting at the table for three meals a day is not what most families do now.” It is estimated that in about 30 per cent of Canadian households people are living alone, and therefore eating alone, a point that the panelists were well aware of. “It is important to sell single servings, small portions, food that is nutritious but fast,” he said. “We must look at what singles and couples are eating.” He pointed to pre-prepared meals and the option of having a sit-down area in grocery stores. “It’s a way of bringing people out, providing more opportunities to interact. We have things with seniors where we bring them out for food.” Moderator Ventin asked about the issues of environmental sustainability. Daugherty answered saying that PepsiCo has seven goals: reducing water in operations, providing safe water access, reducing water use in the supply chain, eight per cent carbon emissions at the processing operations, looking at ways to reduce carbon emissions (the agrifood supply chain is a massive carbon emitter), and working with lots of partners. Jones said his company is decreasing the stores’ carbon footprints in lots of ways including trying to reduce food waste. “That’s one of the great challenges of buying and selling the food we’ll need, but we could reduce waste.” He said they have begun to better inform customers on how to better keep the products they buy in good condition, they have been working with food manufacturers and retailers across the country. “We need to help the environment and society by reducing our carbon footprint and feeding the hungry.” The company also belongs to the Consumer Goods Forum, an international organization which seeks improvements across the board. He mentioned something that worries him. “I’m concerned that government is saying what to put on shelves, where to put shelves, what products go where. For example, juice can’t be eye level so kids don’t see it and want it,” he said. “I say, well, tell your kids they can’t have juice.” He strongly feels that people should be able to make their own choices. “I have faith in people.” Daugherty agreed. “We’re
all smart people and should be able to eat our food in peace.” But she admitted that PepsiCo is working on products with less sugar, less fat, less salt, etc. Jones praised the agricultural and agribusiness communities. “It’s fantastic the ag group we have here – passionate, standing up, not being politically correct. But we need to get your voice stronger and we can convey that to our customers. Let’s get collaborative along all aspects of the food chain. If we don’t, something will happen and today you’re almost guilty until proven innocent. Make sure people know and understand what you do so you don’t get legislated.” Ventin concluded the discussion by pointing out the importance of the adapting to new demographics all along the value chain.
Students from across Canada attended Canada’s Agriculture Day conference at the Westin Hotel in Ottawa on Tues., Feb. 13, through Encounters With Canada, which provides opportunities for youth to spend a week in Ottawa. This year’s theme was Tech and Food, which includes encounters with industry leaders, such as biotechnologists, sustainable food specialists and agribusiness managers, so the Ag Day conference was a perfect opportunity. Shown here are Emily McCabe of Belle River, Ont.; Lyndsay Stevenot of Meadow Lake, Sask.; Rachel Hazelwood-Al-alimi of Duchess, Alta; Reese Williams of Elrose, Sask.; Chandra Brown of Elrose; and Meagan Locke of Whitecourt, Alta.

MacDonald is brilliant at making complex scientific issues understandable and meaningful, and he does it in a fun way. His efforts in promoting science have earned him recognition at the highest level. He is an Officer of the Order of Canada and has received the Queenâ€™s Jubilee Medal. He pleased his audience when he started by praising the agriculture industryâ€™s use of science and innovation to feed the seven-billion+ human population. â€œIâ€™m here as a consumer. Thanks for the food!â€? He also got a laugh with a story showing the differences in styles of food production in Canada. An Alberta rancher told a Nova Scotia fisher it would take from sun up to sundown to drive around all his land, to which the Nova Scotian replied, â€œYeah, I had a truck like that.â€?

(the fourth-largest moon of Jupiter) and Enceladus (the sixth-largest moon of Saturn) have ice crusts with deep liquid oceans beneath the crust. Scientists are considering the possibility that under these seas there could be life which uses chemosynthesis, much like near the hot vents deep in our own ocean. Water appears as ice elsewhere in the solar system too. On Pluto water ice is as hard as steel, due to its extremely cold temperatures. There are also nitrogen and methane ices on Pluto. Nitrogen forms glaciers, but those glaciers move much more quickly than water ice glaciers do. And there are
ice mountains as high as the Rockies, but there may still be liquid water inside Pluto. Then he moved out farther, discussing the over 3,000 exoplanets (planets found around stars other than our sun), and one of the most exciting exoplanet discoveries, the Trappist 7 system. Trappist 7 has seven planets which are in the Goldilocks, or habitable, zone from its star. However, the star is a red dwarf which is much cooler than the sun, meaning the planets are very close. That closeness means they are probably gravitationally locked the way the moon is locked to the Earth, resulting in one fried

The importance of the food processing industry in Canada By Candice Vetter AgriNews Staff Writer TTAWA â€“ PrOcessing AffecTs AlmOsT All The fOOd in grOcery sTOres, sAid sylvie clOuTier, The ceO Of Quebecâ€™s fOOd PrOcessing cOuncil (cTAQ), When delivering The Third keynOTe PresenTATiOn AT The cAnAdAâ€™s AgriculTure dAy cOnference AT The WesTin hOTel in OTTAWA On Tues., feb. 13. She told attendees at the conference, over half of whom appeared to be youth delegates, that consumers tend to think of processed food as instant or ready-to-eat, but any food which is altered in any way, whether in appearance or other physical attributes, has been through a process like cutting, canning or drying. That includes almost everything, except eggs, fresh fruit and some vegetables. Foods like oatmeal are whole foods, but are still milled and packaged. Food processors are the biggest buyers of Canadaâ€™s agricultural products. Quebec processors buy 70 per cent of what is produced in that province, and food processing is the provinceâ€™s primary employer. In Canada, food processing is done by 6,000 companies and creates 200,000 jobs. It is the secondlargest employer in the country, and represents $112.4-billion in deliveries, 18 per cent of the countryâ€™s manufacturing jobs and two per cent of Canadaâ€™s GDP. In addition, processing companies are mainly small and medium-sized businesses. About 90 per cent of them have fewer than 100 employees. Only one per cent have over 500 employees. As expected, products are moved through large distribution and retail channels; but also through non-traditional networks, through warehouses, restaurants, institutions, hotels, pharmacies, and through short channels like public markets. Internationally, Canadaâ€™s main economic partner is the United States, followed by China, Japan and the European Union. Canadian products are sold in 192 countries,
74 per cent to the U.S., seven per cent to China, six per cent to Japan and 5.8 per cent to the EU. Cloutier quoted the oft-repeated phrase that the United Nations is saying there will be almost 10-billion people to feed by 2050. She said Canada is well positioned to be first in line to respond. The agriculture sector has been identified as a key sector by the federal government, and Canadian products enjoy popular demand around the world. An area of uncertainty, which many speakers at the conference mentioned, was the three big trade agreements which are currently unsettled, the TPP, CETA and NAFTA. However, speakers at the conference seemed to believe all three will be signed and settled, with changes, eventually, and there are many smaller, bilateral agreements ongoing. Examples she presented included the Canada-South Korea and Canada-Ukraine agreements. Canada is highly diversified for agriculture, fishing and food processing, and has many resources in terms of space, land and water. â€œWe have to recognize agriculture as a pillar of the Canadian economy,â€? Cloutier said. â€œThere are challenges.â€? She listed a labour shortage, constantly changing consumer demands, food safety and worker safety issues, the need for waste reduction and greener business practices, retailer consolidation, and globalization with new market opportunities. She brought up the subject of alternative proteins, which was also mentioned by other speakers. These alternatives include some Canadian crops like pulses, but also includes nuts and insects. Another growth area is better-for-you snack foods, with examples like kale chips, broccoli bites and fruit crisps. Cloutier also discussed Mission Food and similar e-commerce retailers, which will allow consumers to choose items online which are delivered to the door like restaurant-food, but are cooked in a home-
â€œAgriculture â€“ a pillar of Canadian economyâ€?
Sylvie Cloutier, CEO of Quebecâ€™s Food Processing Council, spoke at the Canadaâ€™s Agriculture Day conference at the Westin Hotel in Ottawa on Tues., Feb. 13, where she discussed the value of food processing and showed new technologies in distribution.
cooking environment. Other technological advances, or maybe changes is a better word, include artificial intelligence which is
creeping into all industries, and 3-D food printing of the future. In the case of 3-D printing, itâ€™s not available commercially yet, and the raw material would be an algae or something similar, which would then be flavoured according to the â€œrecipe.â€? Robotic production and processing methods are already here and well established, and other tech tools, such as smart phone apps which can list the nutritional values of the food on a plate from a photo, are catching on. Food traceability is also aided by various â€œsmartâ€? technologies like Blockchain, which traces a food item from farm to table and is currently very popular. In addition, local and sustainable food production, as evidenced by the popularity of markets and small-farm, humanely-raised livestock, is a short chain option. It is more labour intensive than some forms of production and sale, but also puts more money directly in the hands of the producer, so smaller numbers of units can still make for profitability. Finally, she discussed new sales methods like Amazon Dash, in which Amazonâ€™s virtual tool, Alexa, orders groceries on voice command, which are then delivered to the door within 24 hours. She ended with, â€œLetâ€™s celebrate the food we love.â€?

CREWS, Air Liquide bring investment, jobs to Johnstown by Tom Van Dusen AgriNews Staff Writer OHNSTOWN – THe agriculTure-relaT-

The first opening Feb. 2 was at the 96-acre Canadian Rail Equipment Works and Services (CREWS) site which specializes in rail car storage and cargo trans-loading from rail to truck and viceversa; it will employ six people, soon growing to 10. Almost all of the cargo handled by this company is agricultural, said owner Clayton Jones whose biggest customer is Ingredion of Cardinal, the corn processor formerly known as Casco. Following a $2-million investment, the CREWS site can accommodate 200 rail cars at a time; with another $4.5-million injection, it will be able to handle 350 cars. One week later on Feb.
9, Air Liquide Canada cut the ribbon at GreenField Ethanol from whose corn processing waste it retrieves raw CO2 to transform into liquefied gas for use in the food, water treatment and manufacturing industries. The company, which has invested $30-million and created 10 jobs, also has a Health Canada licence for medical grade CO2. Officiating at both openings, Edwardsburgh/ Cardinal Mayor Pat Sayeau acknowledged that the industrial park across from the expanded Port of Johnstown elevator – which also accommodates a massive Giant Tiger warehouse – has been doing very well indeed. The symbiotic relationship with GreenField gives Air Liquide a steady stream of carbon dioxide to purify while allowing the mother plant to reduce emissions. In addition to ethanol, GreenField turns corn into animal feed and CO2 which is now being recycled. Occupying 170,000 squarefeet, Air Liquide is already

exceeding expectations, producing 200 metric tons a day of liquefied gas out of a full capacity of 300 tons. It was bitterly cold for the CREWS opening but that didn’t stop invited dignitaries from staging a “last spike” ceremony. Armed with sledgehammers, the politicians and Jones took turns driving in the spike on the CREWS tracks before heading to the warmer confines of the
nearby Bridgeview Restaurant for a muchneeded hot coffee reception. That’s where Sayeau carried on the theme, presenting Jones with a “first spike” symbolizing an anticipated phase two of the project this spring. And that won’t be the end of it; CREWS is planning two other phases, at the end of which 50 jobs will have been created. It’s mostly about location, location,
location, along with the right timing and stimulating economic environment, Sayeau enthused. The company has existing operations scattered in Maitland, about 15 km west of Johnstown, Hamilton, and Kemptville, much of which will be consolidated in Johnstown, including the head office. Present at the opening were several family members who work with Jones. The company owner
said feedback has been positive, with numerous business enquiries. The potential is boundless, he said of CREWS which also provides certified operators for locomotives and other rail equipment. The Johnstown location is crucial as it has access to the Canadian National mainline over a spur and is near the Highways 401-416 interchange leading to Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa.

Dealing with OSPCA complaints at Eastern Ontario Dairy Days by Kalynn Sawyer Helmer AgriNews Staff Writer AXVILLE – ThE EAsTErn OnTArIO DAIry DAys wErE hELD In MAXVILLE On FEb. 14 AnD KEMpTVILLE On FEb. 15.

With animal welfare in mind, Eastern Ontario lawyer Kurtis Andrews took to the stage after lunch to speak to the crowd about dairy farmers rights when dealing with complaints from the OSPCA (Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). While Andrews reminded his audience that every case is different and not all advice works in each situation, he did have a few general tips. One of the most important is to remain calm and respectful without giving up too much information.
Andrews referenced a number of cases in which an agent would act overly nice and understanding only to use the information gathered against the farmers. Trying to reasonably explain the situation can sometimes backfire. Andrews said by giving information farmers may feel like they are helping their case and what may seem obvious to them may be taken differently by someone who is not familiar with agricultural practices. He continued to explain what rights the agents have when addressing a complaint. Without a warrant, agents are allowed to look at anything that is in reasonable plain view while driving into the driveway, parking and walking up to the main entrance. Without an invite to any other areas, it could be deemed as trespassing. However if the agents have a warrant, they would be entitled to go anywhere the warrant permits, even if it includes the entire property. Andrews said one of the best ways of dealing with warrants is to express that the agent is not invited but they are not
being stopped either. This way, if a warrant is deemed invalid at a later date, they cannot rely on having had the farmer’s permission. Andrews also said that if the agent has a warrant, charges are almost always going to be laid. “Be polite but make it hard to build a case against you,” he said. From previous experiences, he explained that the agents will often bring a vet with them during the inspection. The best course of action is to call your own vet or
another vet to get to your property as soon as they can to do an inspection of their own. If they can not arrive while the inspection is taking place, they should at least be there on the same day. If it is not possible, Andrews suggested even getting a neighbour or anyone who knows at least something about agriculture to act as a witness. This ensures there is not only one “expert” opinion if the case goes to court. Questions were a con-
stant during Andrews’ speech including one on the issues of biosecurity. While agents will often take measures to ensure clean boots and such, there is no real rule to ensure biosecurity if an agent has a warrant. Another question revolved around employees and children giving permission for access when the owner is not around. Andrews said it is best to talk to anyone who is on the property regularly that no access should be given
unless by the owner. While warrants would grant an agent access no matter what, the owner should always be contacted immediately. In order to protect the farm before a complaint can be made, Andrews suggests vetting new employees thoroughly to weed out animal activists under cover and to ensure the barn is locked and secured to avoid break-ins. “This is a very real problem,” said Andrews. Farmers need to be more careful than ever.

â€œThe worst thing that could happen is that many of our members might feel theyâ€™re not being heard,â€? said Bette Jean Crews in reference to the new board structure under which the number of directors has been carved down to 18 from an unwieldy 110. That process began at the 2005 OFA annual convention with approval of a resolution calling for exploration of alternatives to the massive board. Crews said sheâ€™ll be as proactive in keeping the counties in the fold as she will be in promoting OFA causes to the provincial government. Ultimately, she believes the major governance reform now implemented will have a beneficial impact. Crews was acclaimed as president to a one-year term during the OFA convention in Toronto, Nov. 24-25. The
last woman to hold the post was Brigid Pyke of Wolfe Island from 1985 to 1990. Crews said her appointment as a woman isnâ€™t as significant as it was in Pykeâ€™s day. In the interim, there have been two female agriculture ministers in Ontario. â€œEach of us brings our own approach, personality and set of experiences to the table. It really doesnâ€™t matter if we happen to be male or female. And letâ€™s remember that farming is often a husband and wife partnership.â€? Elected vice-presidents were incumbent Don McCabe and Mark Wales, an executive committee member for the past year. Elected earlier, 15 of the new directors represent zones while three are atlarge; chosen during the convention, they are Joe Dickenson of Lambton County, Larry Davis of Brant County and Peter Lambrick of Halton Region. A full-time Trenton area farmer along with husband Colin, Crews has paid her dues. She was an OFA vicepresident for two years and before that, she was a member of the executive committee for five years. All that training has
made her ready, willing and able to take on her new duties which, she emphasized, sheâ€™ll pick up where Spencervilleâ€™s Geri Kamenz left off. After undergoing preparation similar to Crews on the executive committee, Kamenz became president for the past two terms. He decided not to seek re-election. â€œI have great confidence in Bette Jean,â€? said Kamenz, adding that he leaves the post with a feeling of accomplishment and personal satisfaction. â€œSheâ€™ll work to build a consensus but sheâ€™s not afraid to make a decision at the end of the day.â€? Crews noted sheâ€™s already in the zone of doing OFA business much of the time. â€œI know thereâ€™ll be more as presidentâ€Ś but Iâ€™m still hoping to get most weekends at home.â€? There she helps manage 800 acres of mixed crops, a pick-your-own operation and a brokerage and truck-
ing business for juice apples. In addition to keeping county directors and members happy and in the fold, Crews sees as a priority finding ways to encourage and assist young people to enter and stay in farming, a
hot topic of discussion during the convention. And there are tax and farm risk management issues to deal with, along with continuing the process of developing closer ties with Quebec farmers. Facilitating her work is
the fact Crews doesnâ€™t live too far from OMAFRA Minister Leona Dombrowsky based in Tweed. The two women often run into each other out on the hustings where they can grab a few moments of quality chat time.

Ag Minister announces Ag funding by Candice Vetter AgriNews Staff Writer TTAWA â€“ FederAl AgriculTure And Agri-FOOd MinisTer lAWrence MAcAulAy
MAde An AnnOunceMenT OF signiFicAnT Funding
cAnAdAâ€™s AgriculTure dAy cOnFerence AT The WesTin hOTel in OTTAWA On Tues., Feb. 13. He told conference attendees from across the country that the federal government is allocating $3-billion in funding over the next five years to grow the agricultural and agri-food sectors. Over $1-billion of the $3billion investment will support activities in six federal programs: AgriMarketing, AgriCompetitiveness, AgriScience, AgriInnovate, AgriDiversity and AgriAssurance. On April 1, agriculture ministers from across Canada will launch the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, described as â€œour shared vision for the future of this great sector.â€? The partnership is a progressive federal-provincial-terri-
torial agreement that will help chart the course for government investments in the sector over the next five years. Developed with input from provincial and territorial partners, as well as industry, activities will support three key areas: growing trade and expanding markets, innovation and sustainable growth for the sector, and supporting diversity and a dynamic, evolving sector. MacAulay said the federal government is currently working with the provinces and territories to agree on the shape of the cost-shared portion of the partnership, and just that day an agreement had been reached with the Government of Ontario. He also said great progress was being made towards reaching agreements with the other provinces and territories. â€œAnd today,â€? said MacAulay, â€œIâ€™m proud to announce that these programs are now open for business. As of this moment, we are going live.â€? He said application forms and guidelines are available online now, in order to give the industry time needed to submit applications. That way activities can start as soon as possible after April 1.
www.agrinews.ca â€œAgriculture is booming,â€? MacAulay said. â€œCanadaâ€™s hardworking farmers and food processors are the backbone of the economy, and thatâ€™s how our government wants to keep it.â€? MacAulay was a farmer in dairy and potatoes in Prince Edward Island. â€œYou have to innovate,â€? he said. â€œIt might just be a small innovation, but you have to improve.â€? He described the agricultural and agri-food sector as â€œbooming,â€? and said it is a powerful driver of jobs and middle-class prosperity. Last year, the agriculture and food system contributed over $100-billion to the Canadian economy. Agriculture and food exports are growing by 10 per cent per year, and last year hit a new record of $62billion. Net cash income in the sector topped $16-billion, a new record. â€œAt the foundation of this economic engine are almost $200,000 producers and thousands of SMEs,â€? he said. MacAulay gave a few examples of innovation. â€œIn PEI, a potato farmer has invented a way to sample the soil in his fields â€“ on-the-go. That saves him time and money. In Quebec, a young farm parent has harnessed the internet to get out the positive word on farming. In Saskatchewan, two farmers

have invented a machine that does everything a tractor does â€“ and more â€“ without a driver. And in British Columbia, a farmer is using a robot to check the health of his greenhouse vegetables. I know that we could come up with hundreds of more examples, just in this room. Farmers arenâ€™t standing around waiting around for the future. Theyâ€™re out there creating it themselves. And thatâ€™s a big reason why Canadian agriculture is booming right now.â€? He also said the govern-
ment has set a target of $75billion in ag exports by 2025. â€œThe programs we are launching...will help the sector sell more products, and help showcase Canadaâ€™s reputation.â€? Many of the conference speakers focused on science and innovation. As MacAulay said, â€œStrong trade depends on strong innovation. To compete in todayâ€™s global market â€“ youâ€™ve got to innovate. Thatâ€™s why our programs will have a strong focus on innovation.â€?
He also said the new science clusters will bring industry and scientists to the table to ensure Canadian science is hitting the target. The clusters have already helped farmers boost their bottom line with: higher-yielding crops, better animal health and welfare; and new uses for agricultural crops. The new programs are predicted to help farmers adapt to climate change, conserve water and soil, and grow their businesses to feed the world sustainably. They continued on page 13

Jeff Leal, Ontario’s Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, and Lloyd Longfield, MP for Guelph, on behalf of Federal Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Lawrence MacAulay, were in Guelph, Tues., Feb. 13, to make the announcement. “I am pleased this partnership will continue to ensure that Ontario’s agrifood sector has the support it needs to grow, innovate and step up to the challenge of helping feed a growing population. This partnership will equip our sector with the tools and resources it needs to adapt to changes in the marketplace while seizing new opportunities and responding quickly to any challenges. I look forward to continuing to work with industry and our federal counterparts and look forward to a seamless transition in programming,” said Leal, in the news release. The new five-year Ontario Canadian Agricultural Partnership will set a solid foundation for the future of Ontario’s agri-food sector by supporting specialized research and projects that foster innovation and growth while preparing the sector for the second half of the 21st century. The agreement also includes funding to help farmers manage risks that threaten the viability of their farm, such as unpredictable weather or market volatility. These investments help achieve the federal government’s goal to create good middle class jobs by helping food processors develop products that reflect changing market tastes and seize new market opportunities. “The Canadian Agricultural Partnership will help put Canada and Ontario’s agriculture and agri- food sector on track to continue to innovate, grow and prosper. It will support our farmers and food processors in meeting the world’s growing demand
for their high-quality products, while creating wellpaying middle class jobs and delivering prosperity here in Ontario and to communities across the Canada,” said Lawrence MacAulay, Canadian Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food. Supporting Ontario’s agri-food sector is part of Ontario's plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change. This plan includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable child care, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25 through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.
for strategic initiatives funding. • With all cost-shared agreements under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, federal, provincial and territorial governments investments are shared on a 60:40 basis and delivered by provinces and territories to ensure programs are tailored to meet regional needs. Ontario is the first Canadian Agricultural Partnership
agreement to be finalized. • Programming will be accessible to producers and processors starting April 3, 2018, ensuring a seamless transition in support as Growing Forward 2 concludes. • Application intake windows for cost-share funding assistance will open in April and additional information and program details will be made available once finalized.

Talk about farm succession by Candice Vetter AgriNews Staff Writer ILLIAMSTOW N â€“ EvEryONE kNOWS A hOr-
rOr STOry AbOuT AN ESTATE â€“ EvEN SMALL pErSONAL ESTATES CAN CAuSE STrIfE ThAT rIpS fAMILIES ApArT.
The emotional toll of losing a family member, family dynamics, and displaced anger against the person who died (which canâ€™t be expressed directly) can cause bitter disagreements. That problem is magnified many times when it comes to family farms. There are significant assets, for one thing, work that canâ€™t halt for even part of a day, arguments about work division or whoâ€™s the boss, and a mountain of paperwork. Failure to discuss farm assets, or any business assets for that matter, with spouses and children can lead to huge losses in the end. That was the principal message of the speakers at the Farm Succession Seminar hosted by Oâ€™Farrell Financial Services Inc. at the CharLan Recreation Centre on Tues., Feb. 6. Speakers included Geoff Carter,
Hugh Oâ€™Neill, Matthew Felker, Bonnie Wilson and Keeley Patterson of Oâ€™Farrell Financial Services, Ian Murphy of CKDM Chartered Professional Accountants, and lawyer Eric Pietersma of Horner & Pietersma. The way farm assets are passed on can be subject to many income tax considerations, land transfer tax, shareholder or partnership agreements, and the ongoing issue of control. So often aging parents, or even just Dad (or Mom) want to retain complete control of the farm they built up to be the multi-million-dollar asset it is today. That attitude is natural but if it is accompanied by secrecy the contents of a will can be a shock to heirs. Pietersma told an alltoo-familiar story of a man who died and left the farm, which was all in his name, to his sons, skipping over his wife completely. Of course spouses have rights to inherit, and in the case of a farm probably worked at it for decades, so the leftout spouse, who was elderly, had to sue her own children to get a piece of the pie. Regardless of her being within her rights, after eight years of wasting money and
time, the vast bulk of the estate ended up in the hands of lawyers or went to taxes. The farm was valued at just under $1-million, and $600,000 went to legal fees with $150,000 going for fines and interest at the Canada Revenue Agency. As Pietersma put it, â€œDad was 85, told no one what he planned, gave the farm to three sons equally and ignored his wifeâ€™s needs with no bequests. All hell broke loose.â€? He stressed that the problems were caused because no one knew what was coming. â€œIt was chaotic, terrible, and the family was ripped apart.â€? Sometimes people donâ€™t want to discuss their deaths, but no one is eternal, and talking about dying wonâ€™t make it hap-
pen. Making it part of the conversation starting at an early age helps. As assets are bought or sold, or farming focus changes, such as from dairy to beef, it is simple to go over these changes with the children and frankly discuss what would work for them. Pietersma said succession is a process, not an event. There are multiple stages, which he divides into two main stages. The first is the initial fact-gathering stage. At this point the discussion should be, not just about the operation of the farm, but also about the needs of the people involved. â€œItâ€™s about intergenerational communication,â€? said Pietersma. â€œFact finding isnâ€™t only about adding up the numbers, itâ€™s about what people want.â€?
He stressed that without conversation parents may not know what their children are willing, or not willing, to take on. â€œGrown children away from home may want to come back. The ones at home might not want to stay.â€? One of the difficulties with these conversations is becoming judgmental, which Pietersma said must be avoided. A farm is a business, and just like any other business, the ability to discuss the future should be developed in the organization early on. In many cases, start when the kids are still children, so it doesnâ€™t become a stress point when discussed. The second stage is the implementation of the plan. Lawyers often get involved at a late stage, but good
www.agrinews.ca succession planning should involve your lawyers early, so that before things are agreed on, it is known what is possible and what the financial or tax ramifications will be. Of course there are several types of farm ownership, usually sole proprietorships, partnerships or corporations. Sole proprietorships can be an easy way to operate a business, but make personal exposure and estate administration more difficult. The same is similar with a partnership (whether Mom and Dad, or parents and kids). Owners of assets can get nailed in personal lawsuits, but with a corporation that liability is a partial shield. Farms are risky, but not considered high risk of liability Continued on page 27

Continued from page 26 the way, say, a trucker who owns his truck is. However, the real benefits to incorporation are tax and succession. Another method of succession planning, which wasnâ€™t mentioned by Pietersma, but which this reporter understands from a personal perspective, is putting land in the names of the parents along with the future owners, as joint tenants, so that the transfer is fast, simple, inexpensive, and eliminates the need for probate while having few income tax consequences. However, this should only be done if the original owners are absolutely sure they want the land distributed that way, and it will not change, which may be quite late in life, as childrenâ€™s needs and aspirations change as they mature, and so do the plans of aging parents. Dad may be certain he will die on the farm, but Mom might be looking forward to a nice retirement residence where someone else does the cooking and cleaning, which may mean selling some property or retaining some farm income later in life. That canâ€™t be done without agree-
ment if everyone is a joint tenant, and could end by holding up a necessary change that could have made life comfortable for the elderly owners. Itâ€™s not just children who are involved either, of course, but also the children-in-law. This is when a forced domestic contract comes in handy. This specifies that the spouse of a shareholder can never claim against the corporationâ€™s assets. There are negatives and positives to these prenuptial agreements, but a major advantage is giving the child a big discussion tool when in a new relationship. If daughters or sons come home and say they want to share their lives with a new person, they can blame the parents for making this agreement, and the hard discussion that goes with it, necessary. And it can work both ways. If Mom or Dad dies and the surviving spouse brings home a new partner, then he or she canâ€™t grab the farm either. Everyone is playing by the same rules. The forced domestic contract also provides predictability and control, comparable to life insurance. You hope you donâ€™t need it, but if you do, you know what to expect. However if the new spouse coming in is expected to help support farm
operations, that may not be fair to them either, so again, it must be discussed frankly early on. Other things that can be worked out, especially if meeting with a legal advisor early in the process, are separation, bankruptcy and disability. Other documents also lay out intentions, such as domestic wills, farm wills, leases, etc. If spouses are the only partners then a partnership agreement may not be needed, but in the case of any other involvement, particularly intergenerational or arms-length partners, agreements are needed. In the case of corporate shareholders, a shareholder agreement is essential and consulting with financial planners and tax accountants regarding preferred or common shares should be done. Preferred shares can provide income through dividends, but are not voting shares. â€œYou want to make sure if thereâ€™s a corporation, that the corporationâ€™s board of directors canâ€™t vote the family out of their home and their lifelong business.â€? Itâ€™s also important that the family makes sure the corporation has access to that land, and that it canâ€™t be sold out from under the next generation of farmers. A disadvantage to preferred shares is that they can

trigger large payouts on share retraction. It is suggested that retraction of shares be limited to a slower pace, so a child is not suddenly hit with a big payout, when money is needed for growth of the farm. Another issue with farm succession is the desire to treat farming and non-farming children equitably. Keeley Patterson discussed an interesting method, which was buying life insurance with a high premium

Rural Ontario needs dedicated infrastructure support OFA commentary by Steve Brackenridge, Director Ontario Federation of Agriculture
NVESTMENTS IN INFRASTRUCTURE IN OUR RURAL COMMUNITIES SUPPORT THEIR LONG-TERM SUSTAINABILITY
THAT, IN TURN, SUPPORTS OUR FARM BUSINESSES.
BECAUSE OF THIS, THE ONTARIO FEDERATION OF AGRICULTURE (OFA) IS LEADING A CAMPAIGN FOR INCREASED INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS. NEED TO ENSURE RURAL
WE ONTARIO HAS
ACCESS TO BROADBAND, AND AFFORDABLE NATURAL GAS, AS WELL AS THE EDUCATION AND MEDICAL SERVICES THAT HELP ATTRACT NEW BUSINESSES AND SUPPORT THE WELL-BEING OF OUR RURAL COMMUNITIES.
Sometimes it appears wins are few and far between. Advocating for rural investment takes time. But we are very pleased to see recent investments by the Ontario government in rural communities â€“ with the announcement of updates to the Glanworth Bridge in Middlesex County, 128 new long-term care beds in Havelock, and a new grant for the Bluewater District School Board in Bruce and Grey Counties. The Glanworth Bridge is an important Highway 401 overpass that provides an alternative route for oversized farm vehicles, but had been slated for removal. Farmers have been working for many years to preserve and protect this important
route, and the Ministry of Transportation unveiled updated designs for the interchange at Highway 4 and 401 on February 7. In other good news, a new provincial grant will help cover much-needed repairs to Paisley Central School, improving the chances for a community hub to be created in this area. OFA provided input during the review process for this school. These rural infrastructure and health care wins are great news. They demonstrate the concept of distributed economic development that is OFAâ€™s campaign for candidates in the June provincial election â€“ Producing Prosperity in Ontario. OFA knows that sound public investment in our rural communities will further strengthen and grow the provincial economy, and provide new economic opportunities for families and our farms. When we build stronger rural communities we open up real opportunities for distributing population growth around the province to help solve growth pains for urban centres that struggle with transportation issues and soaring home prices. OFA is engaging with political candidates about the importance of spreading investments around the province to meet the needs of the agri-food sector, support rural communities and provide options for urban centre issues.

CANAdA. The prestigious 4-H Canada Honorary Membership is given to only the most dedicated and passionate contributors to 4-Hâ€™s positive youth development model. Linda Porter and Lyndon Carlson exemplify 4-Hâ€™s values and have gone above and beyond to ensure 4-H members continue to have a safe, fun and inclusive environment in which to grow and work in partnership with those youth to help create better communities. With over 30 years contributing to the 4-H program in Canada, Linda Porter, the Executive Director of 4-H New Brunswick, is widely
known for her enthusiasm, passion for helping young people, her down-to-earth approach and as the driving force behind the 4-H program in New Brunswick. Porter has taken on many roles during her three decades as part of the 4-H movement. She is a former member of the 4-H Canada Board of Directors, has volunteered at the community level, been a mentor to many and continues to push forward initiatives that have measurable impact on youth in her community. Porter has devoted her life to 4-H â€“ whether on the national stage or volunteering at the club level â€“ the health and well-being of Canadian youth is her primary goal. As an alumnus of the 4-H program, Lyndon Carlson devoted his personal time as a volunteer and professional resource to the 4-H movement in Canada. During his tenure with the Canadian 4H Foundation, Carlson was instrumental in creating significant funding resources, programming that strengthened 4-H in Canada at all levels and ultimately the Boardâ€™s strategic plan to be successful. He was a key influencer in the moderniza-

tion of 4-H Canadaâ€™s governance model and practices, and for attracting new stakeholders by leveraging his many connections in the agriculture and business sectors. As a former Senior Vice-President with Farm Credit Canada, Carlson was widely known to have proudly displayed one of his first 4-H trophies in his office and took every occa-
sion to share his fond 4-H memories with clients and colleagues. The 4-H Canada that we know today is due, in many parts, because of the road map that he envisioned. â€œLinda Porter and Lyndon Carlson exemplify the passion and commitment all our outstanding leaders have contributed to bringing 4-H in Canada to new
heights,â€? said David Hovell, Chair of the 4-H Canada Board of Directors. â€œThese Honorary Members have been 4-H champions for most of their lives and have always found the time to make a difference. We are delighted to bestow this prestigious honour upon Linda and Lyndon as our honorary members and will continue to work with them
to advance the positive youth development movement in Canada.â€? The 4-H Canada Honorary Membership was created in 1950 to recognize individuals that have made outstanding contributions to 4-H in Canada. With the addition of Porter and Carlson, there are now 68 inductees as lifetime Honorary Members.
Registration night for 4-H in Lanark County by Dianne Pinder-Moss AgriNews Contributor ANARK COUNTY â€“ If YOU ARe INTeResTed IN beINg pART Of A 4-H CLUb IN LANARK COUNTY THIs YeAR, THe LANARK 4-H AssOCIATION HeLd ITs ANNUAL 4-H â€œsIgN Up NIgHTâ€? ON TUes., MARCH 6, fROM 7-9 p.M. AT THe feRgUsONâ€™s fALLs COMMUNITY HALL, LOCATed AT 1362 feRgUsONâ€™s fALLs ROAd. For those who assume that 4-H is only for those who live in rural areas and are involved in agriculture, Melissa Renaud, the president and association representative for the Lanark 4-H Association, is quick to dispel that misconception. â€œI would personally say, half of our kids, if not more, come from town, or non-rural, non-farm homes,â€? she noted. â€œMany parents hear about 4-H and the kids take an active interest. I personally feel itâ€™s so important for kids to know where their food comes from, and when the kids are learning new things, often the parents learn right along with them. Itâ€™s so important to me to spread the word and promote agriculture to as many people as we can. 4-H is open to youth ages nine to 21 years of age â€“ Cloverbuds is aimed at ages 6-8 â€“ as of Jan. 1 of this year.
During 2017, within the Lanark 4-H Association, there were 143 registered regular members, as well as 15 Cloverbuds. While the number of clubs that will be taking place in 2018 had not been finalized by press time, Renaud said there is a club for everyone. â€œMany livestock clubs allow kids to borrow animals,â€? she mentioned. â€œMany baking, cooking, gardening, etc., are not specific for rural kids at all. There are so many options!â€? The association president is excited that, for the first time â€œin many years,â€? there will be a maple syrup club this year. Representatives of most, if not all, of the clubs being offered in 2018 were in attendance at the registration night with signup sheets and were available to answer any questions that perspective members and their parents might have. The biggest need, right now, according to Renaud, is for â€œmoreÂ volunteersÂ to get more of these clubs out there for the kids interested.â€? Anyone interested in volunteering or seeking more information on the 2018 4-H program in Lanark County is encouraged to contact Renaud at 613-250-0438 or email Melissaruth16@hotmail.com.

Correction In the February issue of Agrinews, the article “GSCIA AGM welcomes soil health speaker” reported, “Sometimes adding a low level of potassium can do a lot more good than extra nitrogen.” Soil health speaker Gilles Guindon suggested it should have read, “In a low potassium level field, adding some potassium in the starter can offset some of the yield losses.” The article also said, “If using glyphosate it may be better to spray and kill weeds first, then return to apply lime when there is more foliage.” It should have read, “If a manganese deficiency has been seen, spraying glyphosate and then coming back when there is more foliage with a foliar manganese is the preferred choice.”

L.E.A.D. Continued from page 37 has been able to tour a new facility your whole perspective of what agriculture can be has changed. We get so caught up in what you and your neighbours do that an organization like 4-H connects youth with things they didnâ€™t even realize were out there. I wouldnâ€™t have those opportunities without 4-H,â€? he explained. To Krebsâ€™ surprise and delight, his mentor was revealed to be Wade Barnes, President and CEO of Farmers Edge. â€œFarmerâ€™s Edge is an incredible company. Iâ€™ve known about them for a long time. Getting paired with them is a dream,â€? said Krebs. Before knowing about his mentor, Krebs explained he had used Farmers Edge as an example many times while discussing cutting edge agriculture during the 4-H summit. â€œTo have a mentor who is at the leading edge of one of the really key areas of innovative agriculture is incredible. There is so much to learn from a guy like that.â€? Each of the 4-H L.E.A.D. winners said they owed a lot to 4-H in fostering their passions and giving them the skills to succeed. That was especially true for Thian Carman. Carman did not come from a farm family. When he joined the Harmony Nicholsville 4-H Club, his passion for agriculture grew. So much so that at age 14, Carman started his own farm after attending a FarmWorks Investment Cooperative event and leaving with $25,000 and becoming Nova Scotiaâ€™s youngest registered farmer. Since then, Carman has cultivated his farm and has 60 ewes, 200 laying hens and 75 acres of sugar bush for maple syrup. His goal is to grow his farm and to reclaim local farm lands to bring agriculture back to his community. â€œThis award means a lot to me. Not being from a farm family and winning an agricultural award is pretty amazing in the first place. This scholarship means a lot in a number of ways. I started my own farm and worked it as a kid. That meant I didnâ€™t have a lot of money saved for university and this scholarship is the reason I get to attend university. It also means a lot that people are recognizing what I am trying to do in my community to create sustainable agriculture. Most of the agriculture is gone from the area and we are mostly a fishing community. So, to see that people are realizing that I am trying to create sustain-
The AgriNews March, 2018 Page 33 able agriculture in my community is amazing,â€? he said. To connect Carman with a worthy mentor, 4-H Canada went outside their own boards to Wales. Carman has been paired with Keith Williams, a Welsh sheep farmer who started his own farm at 17 years old and has since won sheep farmer of the year in 2013 and operates a farm of around 800 ewes. Despite not knowing of Williams before the banquet, Carman could not be happier. â€œIâ€™m really happy with my mentor. Heâ€™s got a similar story to me, started out in agriculture at 17, started his own sheep farm. I honestly canâ€™t wait to talk to him. I jumped into farming with two feet. Iâ€™m loving what I am doing but Iâ€™m also not 100 per cent sure what I am doing. It will be great to have that experience behind me and be able to talk to someone who has been where Iâ€™ve been and made mistakes. I can learn from his mistakes and learn everything he has to teach me,â€? he said. Once Carman completes his animal science and agriculture business degree from Dalhousie University, he hopes to expand from 60 head of ewes up to 400. â€œThen the sky is the limit from there,â€? he said. Carmanâ€™s success is a testament to the power of 4-H and its teachings. As Carman said when he addressed the audience and then later to AgriNews, â€œIf you put the work in, you can do anything. I have a lot of people who have told me I canâ€™t do something because we donâ€™t have agriculture [in my community anymore], but you canâ€™t listen to those people. Keep looking forward and keep talking to the people who want to help. Donâ€™t let other people influence your life in a negative. Always push forward and you can pretty much accomplish anything.â€? Last to the stage was SaraKate Smith. Smith comes from the Yellowhead 4-H Club and is in her first year studying Political Science at the University of British Columbia. She is a second generation 4-Her, a 4-H youth advisor and a provincial representative. Smithâ€™s public speaking skills have led her to aspire to a career in communications. Her resumĂŠ so far includes a TEDx Talk, a presentation at the 2017 4H Global Network Summit and the creation of the 2016 Speak Out Loud Conference in conjunction with 4-H British Columbia. â€œThis scholarship allows me to really focus on my studies and focus on continuing to work and be part of 4H both as a provincial
ambassador and a youth advisor and committee member,â€? said Smith. â€œThis award is so special because of the mentorship opportunity. The ability to be connected with someone who can guide you in your career as you move forward is huge. Iâ€™m so proud and humbled to be the recipient of this scholarship.â€? Smithâ€™s mentor is Mandy Rennehan, Founder and CEO of Freshco, â€œa boutique, trend-setting retail facilities firm comprised of three divisions; Maintenance, Projects and Reconstruction,â€? explains the website. â€œIâ€™ve
been hoping for a female mentor. Itâ€™s going to be really nice getting a female perspective going into a competitive career. I am so looking forward to being able to meet with her and work with her. It was definitely more than I expected and I am so excited,â€? she said. Once her undergrad is completed, Smith said she hopes to pursue a Masterâ€™s in management. â€œI hope to eventually work my way onto the Board of Directors for 4-H Canada. I think a big [part of the future] is taking opportunities as they come or
to create them,â€? she explained. While Smithâ€™s career goals revolve around her passion for communications, 4-H as an organization is definitely on her mind for her future. â€œItâ€™s just taught me so much. I learned organization, time management, how to keep good records, how to network and introduce yourself and put yourself out there. Everything I have I owe to 4-H,â€? she said. â€œBeing a 4-H club leader would be a great next step. I come from a big club and the kids in that club are great. I was a second-generation
member so I would love to go back and be a club leader but also to be able to help and influence 4-H on a more national level.â€? Smith isnâ€™t the only one of her L.E.A.D. alumni to express the desire to give back to 4-H. All four recipients said they hope to return as volunteer leaders in the future â€“ a mentality that is prominent among many of the 4-H alumni. As 2017 National Volunteer Leader of the Year Norma Ansloos put it, â€œWhen youâ€™ve got green blood, you stick with green blood.â€?

2015. The 4-H Canada website explains that â€œL.E.A.D. recognizes outstanding 4-Hâ€™ers who epitomize 4-H youth empowerment. We believe itâ€™s important to acknowledge and honour confident, accomplished 4-Hâ€™ers who have gained critical life skills through their 4-H experience. The recipients demonstrate Personal Impact, Community Impact and Leadership Excellence.â€? The awards, sponsored by the Canadian National Railway company (CN), include a significant financial scholarship for postsecondary studies and the pairing of a 4-H associated mentor in a similar career field. The awards are separated into the four pillars of 4-H, giving applicants with a range of interests the chance to apply. Award winners and
their categories for 2017 are: Sara Kate Smith, from British Columbia, for Community engagement and communications; Evan Krebs, from Ontario, for Science and technology; Sadie-Jane Hickson, also from Ontario, for Environment and healthy living; and Thian Carman, from Nova Scotia, for Sustainable agriculture and food security. These four scholars are just that â€“ dedicated and passionate youth with big dreams inspired by their experiences in their 4-H clubs. First to the stage was Hickson. As a member of the Kawartha-Lakes Haliburton 4-H Association for 10 years, Hicksonâ€™s passion for agriculture grew. As did her love of healthy active living and athletics. Hickson is in her first year at the University of Guelph studying bio-medical science with an interest in plant sciences and agriculture. All the while she competes on the varsity crosscountry and track team. Hicksonâ€™s future goals include both agriculture and her athletic career. â€œI canâ€™t ever see myself leaving [the family farm]. Iâ€™m so thankful for the fresh air and open space around me, I donâ€™t want to leave that,â€? she said. â€œI also want to be the best

I couldnâ€™t think of anyone better to teach me and to just be someone that I can go to for advice or with questions.

First to be recognized was Norma Ansloos as the 2017 4-H Canada National Volunteer of the Year. The 4-H Canada Feb. 2, press release explains, “Norma Ansloos of the Springbank Rawhides 4-H Club in Alberta was chosen as the 2017 4-H Canada National Volunteer of the Year. This award, which is generously supported by The Co-operators, recognizes the significant and pivotal role volunteer leaders play in the 4-H program, is driven by nominations from 4-H members who want to share the positive impact their provincial 4-H leaders have had on them and their communities.” Ansloos was brimming
with emotion as she accepted her award through a standing ovation from the packed crowd. She told AgriNews that she had no idea her 4-H kids had nominated her and that the news of her victory was a complete surprise. During her 31 years as a leader and previously nine years as a member, Ansloos has made an impact on countless children. “4-H has always been my life,” she said. “I think for me to give what I love to children [is amazing]. To see them grow and see what they can do with their lives if they just get a little bit of a push to get them out of their comfort zone. We’re giving them a voice, we’re giving them
confidence, we’re giving them skills for their life. That’s why I love 4-H so much.” Ansloos is both the provincial winner and the national winner and she keeps company alongside a volunteer leader from each province for the 2017 awards. The provincial winners include; Linda Bartsch (British Columbia), Tammy Rumpel (Saskatchewan), Heather Lea (Manitoba), Linda Debney (Ontario), Phyllis
Danforth-Rouleau (Quebec), Helen MacDiarmid (New Brunswick), Edith Wood (Nova Scotia), Brenda Larsen (Prince Edward Island), and Terri-Lynn Gillett (Newfoundland and Labrador). “The 4-H program would not be what it is today without the work of our incredible volunteers. The level of knowledge and development of skills that they are able to transfer to 4-H youth through
hands-on experiences and to the values of community engagement make them invaluable to the 4-H program and all that it does across the country,” said Shannon Benner, CEO of 4-H Canada in the aforementioned press release. “Our 2017 4-H Canada Volunteer Leader of the Year Award recipients best exemplify the dedication and passion all our volunteers put into 4-H and I am more than thrilled to congratulate them all.”

As usual, the entire EY Centre building is overflowing with indoor and outdoor exhibitors. Exhibitor space is in high demand, and we continue to have a waiting list of those who would like to be part of our show. The introduction of online ticketing last year was a big success, and we encourage you to buy online this year to enjoy discounted admission. To learn more or to purchase your tickets, visit the Ottawa Farm Show website. There, you will also find all the information you need to plan your visit to the show. This year, the OVSGA is proud to again offer free parking. New entrances will streamline traffic flow and make it easier to move around inside the show. We have also changed the floor plan to make it easier to navigate the show floor, find a particular exhibitor, and see all the exhibitors the show has to offer. One of the many improvements we offer this year is more seating for our visitors, especially in our Country Diners, where you can enjoy local food offerings. Based on our visitor feedback from last year, we have also ensured more food is available throughout our long Wednesday. The Official Grand Opening will be on Tuesday, March 13, at 11 a.m., in the Main Lobby, inside the south entrance to the building.

Stanton is studying at the University of Guelph for a Bachelor of Commerce in Food and Agriculture. The program is five years long and Stanton had just begun her second year. She hopes to find a specific field of interest over the five years and through her work placements and co-ops. Either way, she knows agriculture is her passion and believes she may pursue the management and marketing side of the industry. Her family farm
is a beef and cash crop production in Pakenham. Stanton cannot foresee if she will go back to the family farm but knows she aims to work in the Ottawa Valley. Stanton heard about the scholarship through a co-worker at her summer placement as an agronomy assistant, with P.T. Sullivan Agro Inc. in Kinburn, . â€œI would like to thank the huge generosity of the Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association in their work to move forward the next generations of agriculture. Iâ€™d also like to thank my 4-H leaders who helped me realize my passions and help me achieve what I have so far,â€? said Stanton. The scholarship totalled $2,500 to be used for a student in their second year of study. Ross said the OVSGA looks forward to continuing this new found tradition in the yearâ€™s to come.

Right across from the Green Tech booth #3227, Navan local Glen Edwards, Treasurer of the Vintage Iron and Traditions of Eastern Ontario, will be displaying his JD 620. Also on display will be a Waterloo Boy Tractor. The iconic tractor was how Deere first entered into the tractor business with the acquisition of the model in March 1918. In a John Deere release from Oct. 2017, the company announced that the Waterloo Boy will be featured at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. “The museum’s American Enterprise exhibition will mark 2018 as the year of the tractor. The Museum’s 1918 green, yellow and red Waterloo Boy tractor
[was] installed at the entrance of the business history exhibition in January. Within the exhibition, a new display on “Precision Farming” will examine a more contemporary story of disruptive technology in today’s agriculture industry with the use of technology including a GPS antenna
donated by Deere.” For those interested in antiques, the traditional antique show will be held near the front EY entrances and will feature a number of interesting pieces for visitors to enjoy. Or visitors can stop by the Green Tech booth to join in the centennial celebrations.

ottawa VallEy farm show gEts a trickEd out sponsor in thE form of a nEw chEVrolEt truck from kEith BEan and BEan chEVrolEt Buick gmc in carlEton placE. The truck gets used in Christmas Parades, Fairs and agricultural events all across the Ottawa Valley to help promote the Ottawa Valley Farm Show. The Farm Show get full use of the truck for six months. The white truck gets decked out with the associationâ€™s new logo and eye-catching rural scenes, making it one original vehicle noticible on the roads.
This is not Beanâ€™s only donation to a special farm cause. Last year the dealership approached GM about performing modifications on Carleton Place farmer Ken Paulâ€™s truck, which GM did, free of charge. Paul had lost a foot in a farming accident decades ago, but used a prosthetic limb and kept on working. However, more recently he lost one arm and one forearm, which made it impossible for him to drive. The modifications took almost a year, including shipping the truck to Korea and Michigan, and in January of this year the finished truck was delivered to a very happy Paul. Beanâ€™s and GMâ€™s generosity to the Farm Show and to Paul is important to the agricultural community.
The Bean Motors Farm Show truck is back again and will be on display during the Ottawa Valley Farm Show. Courtesy OVFS Facebook photo

ThOSe humble beginningS
1927, TO The TOwn OF renFrew. It was there that the newly formed Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association sponsored its first local seed fair at Renfrew Collegiate. The primary objective was consistent with today’s main purpose: to assist in producing, grading, selling and distributing high class and registered seed. In the early days, the Seed Fair rotated each year from community to community throughout Eastern Ontario and West Quebec. Much later, after it had grown too big for rural venues, what became the Ottawa Valley Farm Show found a permanent, central home at Ottawa’s Lansdowne Park where it remained until 2011. When the show settled in at Lansdowne, a major equipment manufacturer spotting a good opportunity set up a display of new machinery. The idea caught on, eventually transforming the annual event into the biggest seed and machinery show east of Toronto. It gradually grew out of one building into six display areas at Lansdowne Park accommodating more than 350 exhibitors. Now, the same number of exhibitors is located under one roof at the 150,000 square-ft. EY Centre on Uplands Drive adjacent to the Ottawa International Airport where it’s held every March. The show continues to improve its offerings to the regional agricultural community. In addition to seed and machinery, the OVFS includes livestock information displays, 4-H exhibits, quilts, antiques, farm toys and books, tools, equipment, associations, financial institutions, and just about every other product and service of special interest to the farm and rural community. back TO
In addition to the Prestigious Pedigreed Seed Sale on the third day, other highlights include the annual seed awards, along with the opening day official opening and exhibitors’ reception. The Seed Sale for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario continues to be a focal point of the three-day show. Over close to 25 years, the sale has raised about $130,000. In 2010, the OVFS was named a member of the prestigious Farm Show Council which includes major shows throughout North America and in New Zealand. The objective is to make sure farm show exhibitors and visitors are being provided with the most professional event possible. FSC membership was reconfirmed in 2015. The Seed Growers are proud of the contribution to the Eastern Ontario agricul-
tural community that they’ve been able to make with part of the proceeds from the annual farm show. Each year, they donate
about $50,000 to agricultural research, regional 4-H, agricultural society education programs and other initiatives.

During those fun-filled days, visitors are bound to need to refuel and ensure they have the energy to enjoy the full potential of the farm show. Therefore, once again, the Ottawa Valley Farm Show is teaming up with Beef Farmers of Ontario, Ontario Pork and the Chicken Farmers of Canada to bring a featured meal to each day of the show. â€œLast year the food was a big hit,â€? said OVFS General Manager Emma Lackey. To continue on the path of success, Lackey said the

show has made a lot of enhancements to the 2018 program and will feature two major eating areas at either end of the venue. Lackey explained there will be country diners to bring an agriculture atmoshphere to even more areas of the show and to act as a base for visitors to relax and enjoy their meals. Tues., March 13 will feature a traditional beef on a bun meal; Wed., March 14 will feature chicken on a bun; and Thurs., March 15 will feature pork on a bun. The partnership with the provincial organizations means the cost of the meals can be subsidized and is considerably lower, only at $6. Meal tickets will be available on the day of the event.

Offers a varied grOup
Of presenters at the
marCh event. Odette Menard, Regional Advisor for Soil Conservation, Canada, will be the first presenter in Hall A during the Ottawa Valley Farm Show. Her presentation, sponsored by NUFARM, is titled â€œImportance of Soil Health.â€? Menard has had a lengthy career in soil conservation and has a deep passion for her work. She is an agricultural engineer from Saint-Hyacinthe, Que., and a member of the Soil Conservation Hall of Fame. On the Soil Conservation Council of Canada website, a story about Menard quotes her as saying, â€œI try to help producers think about why they do things the ways they do,â€? she says. â€œTake tillage, for example. The plough was invented for three reasons: drainage, weed control and improving soil fertility. Today, we have tools other than tillage to help in those areas. So one of my first questions to farmers is, â€˜Why are you ploughing?â€™ Sometimes, they donâ€™t know why, other than the fact that theyâ€™ve always done it that way. â€œSo I ask them, â€˜Are you making the decisions on this farm or are you just driving the tractor?â€™ Basically, itâ€™s a matter of helping producers take back their farms from an agronomic perspective.â€? Menard will be in Hall A from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. for her presentation. At the same time on Tues., March 13, Jersey Ontario is hosting Eric Baumann and his presentation, â€œJerseys and Heat Stress,â€? in Meeting Room 3. Baumann is a Jersey Ontario Director serving Leeds-Grenville Parish Club. He grew up on a Jersey farm near Brockville and in 2011 he received his B.Sc., major-
ing in Animal Science. Afterwards, he began his graduate studies at UniversitĂŠ Laval working under the supervision of Dr. Rachel Gervais. His research has involved milk odd- and branchedchain fatty acids and the factors that affect them. On Wednesday in Hall A from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Precision Planting Inc. will host Chris Creek and his presentation â€œ20/20 Insight vs. 20/20 Hindsight.â€? Creek is the Northeast Region Manager for Precision Planting. He is experienced in the technical environment of modern agriculture and has a B.Sc., with experience in mechanical engineering technology. His work with Precision Planting includes the companyâ€™s efforts to provide insight and assistance to each individual farmer in order to achieve the best possible yields. Also going on throughout the Wednesday activities will be the Kemptville Alumni reception. On the Kemptville Alumni website members suggest visitors, â€œMark your calendars and plan to meet up with Kemtpville grads on March 14. We will again be gathering in Meeting Room 3 from 1 oâ€™clock until 3 oâ€™clock. Stop by for a cookie, coffee, tea and a good visit.â€? The Alumni are marking the 101st year since the opening of the now-shuttered Kemptville College. On the same day the Ontario Federation of Agriculture is presenting on the topic of â€œProducing Prosperityâ€? in Hall A from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The OFA is very active in Eastern Ontario and has several local chapters, all of which welcome new members. On Thursday JLDLague Group is hosting Bruno Bouchard and his presentation â€œWater Managementâ€? from 10 a.m. to noon in Hall A. Bouchard is an Ag Sales Director and Precision Ag Consultant with JLDLague Group. Precision ag has become increasingly important to minimize
fertilizer, herbicide and pesticide use, and to modify crop conditions within a field. Later in the day from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in Hall A, RBC will host the final presentation of the Farm Show with â€œTransitioning the Family Farm: Preparing for Sale, the Transaction and Life after the Sale.â€? Retirement is a difficult decision for any farmer, especially if the whole family is involved, but selling the farm is a whole different level of life disruption and financial and tax implications can make or break a retirement lifestyle. All of the presentations will be available to visitors who wish to learn more about any of the topics. The companies hosting the presentations be represented will also throughout the venue at their exhibitor booths, so additional questions visitors may have can be addressed by representatives at any time. As always the Farm Show offers something for everyone, from the beginning young farmer to the retiree.

Determined to take back world record
Denis Lauzon, Jeremy Lauzon and Francois Latour were at the Ottawa Valley Farm Show last year to promote their new attempt to break the world record for number of threshing machines operating at one time back to Eastern Ontario. In 2015, Latour spearheaded a successful challenge to the world record with 111 mills running continuously for 15 minutes. In 2016, a group in Saskatchewan surpassed that record, and now Latour and supporters are putting out the call for 150 antique machine operators to bring their threshing mills to the St. Albert Curdfest in August of 2019. At recent events in 2017 and early 2018 when AgriNews ran into Latour, he said was always looking for more threshers and was confident the event would set a new record.

In past years, there have been petitions available to sign and multiple points of view to explore with exhibitors. Some groups have diametrically opposed opinions and it can be interesting to hear two, or more, sides of a story, which sometimes lead to heated debates on the exhibit floor. The beef, pork and chicken farmers’ associations will be there promoting their products as the “meal of the day” on each of the three days of the show, providing food for the body and food for thought. Usually organizations also have brochures, statistics and additional data, as well as contacts whom the curious can go to for further information. So keep an eye open for the chance to engage in some exciting (hopefully not too exciting) dialogue.
