Ryan Boyd & Blake Nestibo,

Ron Kostyshyn,

Welcome to the 37th show of Manitoba Ag Days. We are pleased to offer you a dynamic show that is filled to capacity with a variety of exhibitors, displaying the latest in agricultural production expertise, technology & equipment. With most of the prairies experiencing great crops this year there will no doubt be a buzz of excitement around this year’s show. One of the elements that make our show unique is that our exhibits are required to be of an agricultural nature. Our 100% Pure Farm tag line says it all, you won’t find any household products here, farm business is the focus. We are proud to say that with over 10 acres of exhibits we are Canada’s Largest Indoor Farm Show. As you prepare for the 2014 growing season, Ag Days is your one-stop shop for all your agricultural needs. With so much to see, be sure to make your way down the Ag Centre Concourse towards Barn 4 where we showcase a great variety of inventions to peak your interest. Sometimes the inventor is a large manufacturer but most often it’s a farmer or small local company. There have been many examples of successful products that have had their start at Ag Days. On your way there, stop in to the Bull Congress which is once again filled to capacity. Producers interested in breeding stock have a chance to talk to the exhibitors about their herd genetics and do a little comparing as well. You will notice in the Show Guide a section highlighting exhibitors that are displaying New Products. Look for the New Product sign in their booths as you walk the show. This year we are asking you the patrons to vote on which of these products are the best – see page 43 for more details. A very popular part of the show has always been the seminars. Thanks to our hard working program committee for putting together a comprehensive slate of speakers and topics that won’t disappoint. Construction in the Amphitheatre is complete and we will be running concurrent sessions there along with the Westman Place Arena theatre. Look for signage at the show. As workplace safety continues to be forefront in the minds of everyone Manitoba Ag Days welcomes the Farm Safety display on the lower level of Westman Place Arena. We’ve complemented this display with STARS Air Ambulance as our feature booth. Swing by to meet and talk with the pilots and find out what makes this service beneficial to the rural landscape. Thank you to our many sponsors and you will find them mentioned on various pages in this guide. We look forward to seeing you at Ag Days 2014 – It’s Where the Ag Year Begins.

On behalf of Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Development and the province, welcome to Manitoba Ag Days 2014. Ag Days is one of western Canada’s leading farm shows. Year after year producers and industry alike return to Ag Days to discover the latest technologies and equipment, as well as meet with commodity suppliers, experts and neighbours. Agriculture not only remains as one of the cornerstones of Manitoba’s history, it is a key driver of future economic prosperity. We are proud of Manitoba’s farmers who continuously innovate to ensure they capture the opportunities available, as well as to respond to industry’s challenges. We know that agriculture and food are integral to Manitoba’s economic success. Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Development (MAFRD) is dedicated to working with all stakeholders in the entire value chain to build a profitable agriculture and food sector, and stronger communities across Manitoba. I invite you to visit the MAFRD booth for information regarding Growing Forward 2 which will assist in enabling innovation, competitiveness and market development. Ag Days is the forum to investigate new options that will enable our industry to grow and facilitate rural economic development. Whether it is exploring the latest innovations, technology and equipment; or looking for intelligence on crops, farm business management or livestock production, I encourage you to discover the possibilities –there is always something new to learn at Ag Days. Enjoy Ag Days 2014.

Seminars  Workshops Land Economics: How Much is Too Much? Dan Caron

In a time when land prices have risen to record levels in Manitoba, should grain farmers continue to buy and/or rent that extra piece of land at these record prices? Where is the tipping point?

Soybeans have seemingly been grown with little added fertilizer and produced good yielding crops. But soybeans do remove considerable amounts of phosphorus and potassium and neglect in applying these nutrients comes at the price of soil depletion. Recent Manitoba studies and observations will be used to illustrate the importance of these and other nutrients in the continued sustainability of soybean yields and profitability.

Producers and industry personnel receive a large assortment of graphs, charts, analysis and recommendations from a wide variety of sources. With the internet, all manners of agronomic information can be found with a few Google searches. But not everything that is called research actually turns out to be research. Mainly through the use of examples, Terry will explain some very easily applied and easily understood research principles that can help producers and industry personnel assess the quality of research and the conclusions or recommendations being drawn from it. Come to the FCC Theatre on Wednesday at 1:30 pm to hear how you can get a much better understanding on your own of what’s real and what’s not.

Seminars  Workshops Surface Tillage, Does it Work For You? Fertility Management – NPKS PANEL Where do They Belong? Dr. Jeff Schoenau

Tillage tools have changed dramatically over the years. They are larger, built heavier and get the work done faster and more effectively. They also cost more and require pulling power to match. Surface tillage is a newer type of tillage implement that can help meet the demand of today’s farm operation for getting the job done fast and effectively. Our panel of surface tillage equipment users will give you their take on how it is working on their farm. See if there is a fit for your farm. Join Manitoba producers Anthony Raes and Ed Peters in the FCC Theatre on Wednesday 2:00 pm to hear their experiences with surface tillage.

Risk, Reward & ROI; How Tile Drainage Will Revolutionize Your Land Chris Unrau

Sub-surface water management, more commonly known as Tile Drainage, is rapidly spreading into the Canadian Prairies as a technique to manage risk, ease farming operations, and increase returns. Chris will bring to the discussion his 10 years of career experience in farm management and land improvement. Join his presentation in the FCC Theatre on Wednesday at 3:00 pm to learn about the benefits that tile drainage has for the environment, your land, and your bottom line.

This presentation being held in the MNP Theatre on Thursday at 10:00 am will cover the tolerance of common prairie field crops to seed-row placed phosphorus, potassium and sulfur fertilizers. Join Jeff as he discusses the effect of different rates of ammonium phosphate, potash and ammonium sulfate in the seed-row alone, and in combination, on germination and emergence. Crops evaluated in the studies reported on include cereal grains, pulse crops, oilseeds and forages.

Glyphosate Resistance Management With an Update from Manitoba, Saskatchewan & North Dakota PANEL

Glyphosate resistance is becoming a huge issue not only in Manitoba, Canada and North America but internationally as well. When glyphosate was first brought to market we were told that we would never have glyphosate resistant weeds. Well 40 years later, we do!!! And weeds that are resistant to other herbicide groups as well. We have put together a panel of experts to discuss the current situation in the different geographies, what we know so far, what we need to do further research on and how we can mitigate the risk. Jeff Stachler will discuss the situation to the south, Hugh Beckie (tentative) will discuss the situation to the west and Lionel Kaskiw will discuss our current situation in the province. This is a panel so there will be lots of time to ask questions. Please join us in MNP Theatre on Thursday Morning at 10:30 am.

Seminars  Workshops New Forage Insurance Programs What’s Your Beef Business Model? PANEL for 2014 Rhéal Bernard

On Thursday, 11:15 am in the FCC Theatre join a panel of 3 successful beef producers that have 3 very different methods of business and marketing for their operations. Trevor Atchison, a Conventional Cow/Calf Producer from Pipestone, MB; Marc Boulanger an Organic Beef Producer from Grande Clairiere, MB; and Jerry Wulf, Integrated Beef Producer from Minnesota will have an in depth discussion on their business plans, costs of production and marketing tactics. Compare the risk management tactics of the niche marketing producer that has the opportunity to price set for premium products, to that of the conventional producer that is a price taker in a volatile market place. You will also hear from a producer that uses an integrated model that allows for unique risk management strategies and product branding such as a calf buy-back program

Starting in 2014 MASC will be introducing a new forage program suite that has been developed to provide forage and livestock producers with new alternatives to mitigate their forage production risk. Producers will have a choice of two main programs, Select Hay Insurance and Basic Hay Insurance that have standard features as well as options designed to fill existing gaps. Join Rhéal, Insurance Sales and Service Manager with MASC, in the FCC Theatre Thursday at 10:45 am to get details about this new program.

You can challenge an Alpha’s dominance, but we wouldn’t advise it. Introducing the Case Alpha Series, a line of industry-leading skid steers and compact track loaders that offer you more. A lot more. Want power? They feature best-in-class horsepower. So whether you’re prying up a concrete slab or digging a pool, you’ll have the breakout force you need to get the job done. Maybe you want more stability? With its Power Stance wheelbase and exclusive Ride Control, there isn’t a more stable skid steer on the market. If it’s more space you’re after, you’ll be glad to know we’ve redesigned the cab to be 25% wider, with the industry’s best visibility and leg room. And when it comes to standard features, we have more of the things you really want, like switchable control patterns, hydraulic self-leveling, proportional auxiliary controls and the ability to swap attachments under pressure. The Alpha Series is here. Expect more. casece.com.

2014 BULL CONGRESS

Exhibitors

BARN 3

Interested in finding some of the best Bull Genetics around? Then you need to attend Bull Congress since this isn’t your typical cattle show – in fact it’s not a livestock show. Bulls are displayed similar to the many other products and exhibits at Ag Days. Producers interested in breeding stock have a chance to see the bulls, talk to the exhibitors about their herd genetics and do a little comparing as well. Bull Congress once again will be at capacity featuring over 30 exhibitors.

MANITOBA AG DAYS

Feature Booth

For 2014 Manitoba Ag Days has selected STARS Air Ambulance as our Feature Booth. You will find them located on the lower ice surface of the Westman Place Arena adjoining next to the Farm Safety display. With many of us in the agricultural industry working in the rural landscape emergency services can be miles away when help is needed. As this service becomes more rooted in Manitoba it was a great time to welcome their presence to the show and allow them to highlight how they can help during an emergency. STARS offers time, hope and life-saving air medical transport to critically ill and injured patients. Since arriving in Manitoba in 2011, STARS has flown over 650 missions across dozens of communities throughout rural Manitoba.

STARS is more than just a helicopter, it’s a comprehensive emergency medical system made up of several components. Flight crews, air medical crews, and education specialists work together to ensure patients receive the specialized medical care they need, even if they are far away from a major hospital. STARS is proud to be a link in the chain of survival in Manitoba, working closely with EMS crews, hospital medical staff, fire departments and law enforcement officials. As a not for profit, charitable organization, the success of STARS depends on support from government, corporate, community and individual contributors. Stop by their booth, talk to the crew and hear how you can help be the bright spot in someone’s darkest day.

The most comprehensive seed lineup on the prairies is ...

Available at more than 260 CPS retail locations Throughout the prairies, nobody offers more seed varieties across more crops than Proven Seed. Nobody. And our powerful team of seed experts at Crop Production Services will work with you to help you choose the right agronomic seed solution for your farm. Contact your local CPS retail

2014 NEW PRODUCTS Ag Growth Industries

■ STORM (Seed Treatment Optimized Rate Metering) is an innovation in seed treatment equipment. The integrated auger unit and electronic controls deliver precise application allowing absolute accuracy. The metering conveyor measures seed flow and automatically adjusts the peristaltic pumps for optimal coverage, while reducing waste and ensuring consistent coating from the first seed to the last.

Agromec Industries ■ The Agromec/Emily Sigma is a loader mounted bale shredder/blower which blows straw up to 15m away in a 260 degree radius. All functions are controlled by a joystick in the cab making bedding an easy one step process. Square bales in all sizes and round bales up to 4’ wide can be processed.

Decisive Farming ■ Optimize RX-S™ is variable rate seeding that works. Within-field variability requires that seeding rates change across the field to achieve optimal crop density. Optimize RX-S™ uses management zones that correspond to your fertility plan, allowing for the yield potential of each zone to be managed with the corresponding seeding requirements.

FLAMAN ■ The Flaman Pro-Digger RD-4400 is built rock solid and has a digging depth of 44”. With its 1½” thick double tooth thumb and weight of 4790 lbs it removes rocks with ease. Improve field conditions and increase your land value with the Pro-Digger. (RD-3600 (36”) also available)

Gatco Manufacturing ■ CrossFlow Aeration is the revolutionary system that moves air horizontally to the centre of the bin where it is vented out with a GrainAir Tube. With shorter air travel distance and reduced static pressure, CrossFlow is the most efficient aeration system ever.

Haukaas Mfg ■ The Rotating Bale Grapple unloads two bales at one time off of semi trailers and hydraulically rotates them 90 degrees to quickly and easily place them in a mushroom stack. With this Double Rotating Grapple hay producers can unload a semi of 30 round bales in 12 minutes. It quick attaches to most front end loaders and skid steers.

Max Quip ■ DieselFlex is a computerized system that injects natural gas or propane into the air intake of diesel engines, proportional to the turbocharger’s pressure, throttle position and the gas temperature. DieselFlex will produce horsepower increments from 20-25% and overall fuel savings in the range of 10-15% depending on fuel costs.

Paradigm Precision ■ Paradigm Precision is now offering UAV image services. The images can be used for drainage, variable rate fungicide, environmental or physical crop damage assessment, pivot calibrations, early detection of crop stresses and more. Our turnaround time is within 2 days after taking the image. 43

A team to maximize your farm’s profitability? It just makes sense. What one farmer cannot do alone, together we can achieve—in the FNA farm business alliance. Together we have brought Members hundreds of millions of dollars in additional profit they would not otherwise have realized. All because they made the strategic decision to participate in FNA. And right now, FNA Members are investing in one of the world’s most advanced fertilizer projects, becoming partners in the FNA Fertilizer Limited Partnership and ProjectN. These farmer-partners are executing a strategy to enter the supply chain rather than merely pay for it. You too can move some of your fertilizer costs from the expense column to the revenue column, and secure your own fertilizer supply by actually owning a part of the new plant. Let FNA work for you. Participate with 10,000 other producers in the only farm business alliance dedicated to maximizing your profitability. We guarantee it will be one of the best investments you ever make in your operation.

Let’s Talk. Call us at 1-877-362-3276.

The Greener Greenhouse Food production using less energy – inside ACC’s

sustainable greenhouse we are harnessing the sun’s energy to produce food crops, this is especially helpful when the winter weather sets in and the growing season comes to a halt.

BigYIELD

Sclerotinia RESISTANCE

Food production for rural and northern communities is a main topic of research. Fresh produce leads to healthier living.

Sustainable Practices – Solar panels heat our two greenhouse bays through a forced air system while the black north wall radiates solar gain by biomass heating. Collection of rainwater and snow melt for watering continues the sustainable theme.

Efficiency – Heating, venting and the operation of thermal blankets are monitored by computers and can be controlled via smart phones. Assiniboine Community College – We have the word community in our name for a reason. All communities are important and we believe that the work we are doing to improve communities everywhere will have tremendous value.

The first line of defence against sclerotinia. Sclerotinia could cost you $20-$30 per acre or more this year. Every year, canola growers are losing 2-3 or more bushels of canola seed, or nearly $5,000/quarter section. With unpredictable rain at flowering, infection can occur. Growing Proven VR 9561 GS with sclerotinia resistance is your first line of defence against infection. Contact your local CPS retail location and get the power to grow with Proven VR 9561 GS and the entire Proven Seed portfolio.

AG IN THE

Classroom

Manitoba Ag Days is a proud supporter of Ag in the Classroom which has been providing the school tour program over the past few years called the MB Ag Days Adventure. Grades 7 and 8 students along with their teachers and chaperones have the opportunity to increase their knowledge and understanding of Science, Social Studies, Careers and Agriculture through interactive Agriculture activities offered each day of Manitoba Ag Days. The student’s activities are focused on the theme: Agriculture-Think Global, Act Local, giving them a perspective on global issues. As part of a team, students will discover the importance of agriculture in Manitoba by following clues to find out awesome information about agriculture from participating booths at Manitoba Ag Days in the Keystone Centre. With much of the population becoming more distanced from the farm gate it’s an excellent opportunity to enhance the importance of agriculture. Approximately

Introducing

450 students attend this program on an annual basis and benefit from a hands on learning experience. Thank you to the exhibitors that contribute their time to participate in this event helping make it successful. For more information visit www.aitc.mb.ca

Ever since the Ag Days show started 37 years ago the focus has always been agriculture. The show has certainly grown since its humble beginnings but one thing has never changed – our commitment to ensure exhibitors are ag related. You won’t find things that should be at a home show such as pots and pans and the like. We are 100% Pure Farm and are proud to feature everything from equipment to parts to ag services and all things in between. If it’s a part of your farming operation you’ll find it at Ag Days – it really is “Where the Ag Year Begins”!

Be an AGvocate Speak up, speak positively Those of us involved in agriculture love what we do and we want the best for our industry. We know why agriculture is important to Canada and the world, and that it provides a lifestyle that can’t be beat. But we tend to be a humble group, so others may not hear this message. We need to remember: image matters. What we say about agriculture influences how people view our industry. Share your passion and optimism for agriculture and let it shine through everything you say and do – being an agvocate is that easy. Agvocates look for opportunities to talk about what’s going well in agriculture. They fill in information gaps, help dispel myths and learn more about the industry. Image is critical to our future, and fortunately we have a very positive story that we can tell. So let’s tell it.

• Get young people excited. There are jobs – great jobs. There’s farming of course, but many more options from science and sales to processing and manufacturing. • Speak positively. Investment tends to flow to progressive industries that have a promising future. • Inform consumers we’re capable business managers and stewards of the land, driven to produce safe, high quality food using sustainable methods. Our image matters – in fact, it has never mattered more. Tell the world why you love agriculture and what the industry means to you. We’re counting on you to tell the real, positive story of Canadian agriculture.

When The Western Producer celebrates a birthday, we GIVE the gifts. Farmers have been reading our newspaper for 90 years. And their children have been part of 4-H Canada for the last century. To commemorate these two milestones and support the continuing work of 4-H Canada, we are partnering with John Deere to give away a John Deere XUV825i Crossover Utility Vehicle to one lucky winner. Head to www.producer.com/contest for full rules, regulations and an entry form. Contest closes June 2014. Good luck!

Gator™ awarded may not be exactly as illustrated. Approximate value $14,000.
