Message from Stan Struthers, Minister of Agriculture, Food & Rural Initiatives

Message from Jonothon Roskos & Scott Perkin, Manitoba Ag Days Co-Chairmen

Welcome once again to Manitoba Ag Days. For over 30 years Manitoba Ag Days has been featuring the latest in equipment, technology and information and this 34th edition will be no different. Our exhibit numbers are now at 520 occupying every part of the Keystone Centre. The popular features such as Inventor’s Showcase, Bull Congress and the seminars will once again be available. The construction areas in the Keystone Centre we encountered last year are now completed and you will find most exhibitors back in their usual locations. One change you will see is both seminar locations moved to the seating area in the Westman Place Arena. We tried this last year successfully with one seminar room so have decided to put both seminars in adjacent locations at the south end of the arena where seating is more abundant. The program committee has put together an outstanding group of speakers again this year. You’ll find Inventor’s Showcase back in its familiar location on the arena floor in Westman Place Arena. Bull Congress in Barn 3 has the most exhibitors in its history and now has a waiting list to participate. Look for the farm safety displays as well on the main arena floor. Watch for signs on various displays designating new products – there’s a listing in this guide as well. Manitoba Ag Days has undertaken a major upgrade and improvement of its website so you should be able to find more information than ever just by going to . We would also like to say thank you to our many sponsors and you will find them mentioned on various pages in this guide. Ag Days is financed completely by exhibitor fees and sponsor contributions. We look forward to seeing you at Ag Days 2011 – It’s Where the Ag Year Begins. — Jonothon Roskos & Scott Perkin – Co-Chairmen, Manitoba Ag Days

As Minister for Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives, I am pleased to join organizers of Manitoba’s Ag Days 2011 in welcoming you to three days of learning, sharing, and discovery, January 18th to 20th. Ag Days continues to live up to its reputation as the event “where the agriculture season begins”. Manitoba farmers and industry members have opportunities to experience the latest products and services, and to attend presentations and workshops designed to help them with their production decisions. Ag Days 2011 offers something for everyone, covering a range of topics, from crop production and farm management to environmental planning and livestock events. Another favourite aspect of the event is the annual agri-trade show, which remains one of Western Canada’s largest displays of equipment and agriculture supplies. With Ag Days celebrating 34 consecutive years, its success and popularity come as a result of a core group of dedicated organizers, volunteers and show staff. I extend my personal thanks to these producers, agri-business members, and staff from my department, whose diligent efforts have ensured Ag Days’ status as “the premier” agriculture planning event in Manitoba. I look forward to seeing you at Ag Days 2011. — Honourable Stan Struthers, Minister

our wacky world of weather

Vertical Tillage: Is it Time to Trade Off the Cultivator or Disc?

John Sauder

Chris Claeys & Roger Burak

New vertical tillage implements allow farmers in 100% zero till rotations to till the land without disturbing all the standing stubble, but still penetrate deep enough to fracture the shallow hard pan. This allows for faster break down of high residue crops and allows the surface to warm up and dry quicker. Chris Claeys and Roger Burak will talk about their experiences with Vertical Tillage in Theatre #1 on Wednesday afternoon. Chris Claeys was born and raised on a family farm outside of Deloraine, MB. He took Engineering at the University of Manitoba but then decided to return to the farm, using his knowledge in computers and electronics to benefit his farming practices. Roger Burak grew up in the Arborg area, and operates a mixed grain and beef family farm with his father. He works for MAFRI in the Agriculture Diversification Centre program and with the local producer organization PESAI, to research innovation in agriculture.

John is endorsed by the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society and is one of only three Canadians to be recognized by the American Meteorological Society with their Seal of Approval for Weathercasting.

Shawn McCutcheon operates McCutcheon Farms in the Carman area with his family growing corn, soybeans, canola, edible beans, wheat and ryegrass. Shawn says “excess water has become the number one limiting factor to consistent crop production on our farm”. During his presentation he will provide current information on what is happening on his farm and in the area to manage excess water. Shawn will also provide information on what is happening at the municipal level to try to confront this challenge. Shawn will be speaking at 10:00 am at the Drainage Workshop in Theatre 2 on Wednesday.

The Carrot Valley Farming Area, located near The Pas, Manitoba, is home to one of Manitoba’s most elaborate drainage systems. Known as the Carrot River Project, this federal-provincial collaboration began in the 1950’s and resulted in an extensive Holland-type dike and ditch system, complete with polders. Today, producers in the area continue to adapt to the seemingly never-ending challenges of field drainage combined with the increasing pressure of water quality management. The Carrot Valley Farming area is now home to some Manitoba’s most productive farmland. Gwen Donohoe is the vice chair of the Kelsey Conservation District located in The Pas, MB, where she farms with her family on a mixed farm (300 head commercial cow-calf operation and grain and oilseed production). Gwen will speak on Wednesday in Theatre 2 at 11:00 am.

Stan Wiebe farms with his brother and father north-east of MacGregor, Manitoba at Beaver Creek Farms Ltd. They grow potatoes, wheat, canola, oats and corn. The farm began in 1968 and over the years many crops had quality and yield potential knocked back as a result of wet, saturation issues on the almassippi sand they farmed. Tiling became a regular feature starting in 1998 and since then approximately 400 acres has been tiled each year. Tiling has proven to be among the best investment made at Beaver Creek Farms. Stan will talk about this journey with tiling, the benefits and whether it pays. Hear Stan at 10:30 am in Theatre 2 on Wednesday.

Variable Rate technology is gaining rapid adoption among crop producers in Manitoba. Variable Rate (VR) fertilization was the first to be adopted by growers as GPS technology has grown in popularity. VR can also be used to apply fungicides. In 2010, a project using crop cam technology (unmanned aerial vehicle) was used to determine zones where fungicides would be applied to crops according to crop growth and yield potential. Rejean Picard is the Farm Production Advisor at Somerset, MB with MAFRI and will present the results of this project in Theatre #1 on Thursday at 2:30 p.m.

Last year people across Canada supporting the Canadian Food Grains Bank provided food to over 30 countries, helping over 2 million people. How are Manitoba farmers a part of this effort? Why would farmers in Manitoba have used 4200 acres of land in 2010 to produce food for people they don’t even know? And how important is the support the farmers get from their agri-businesses, their local input dealers and also the large corporations? You will hear about how the CFGB works, and how you too can help provide the very essence of life – food – to people in need. Harold Penner farmed for nearly 40 years and is now Regional Coordinator for CFGB. Harold will speak about the CFGB in Theatre 2 on Thursday at 2:45 pm.

The Show

Back to Normal The roof upgrades in the Keystone Centre along the Main Concourse and Convention Hall are completed and these areas returned to their normal use. We moved these exhibitors to other areas of the show for 2010 but you will find most back in their usual locations. Check closely through as some chose to stay in their 2010 spots. Inventor’s Showcase has also been returned to its regular area in the Main Arena. Look for the gold draped booths around the south end of the arena floor. One change we began last year and have continued this year is the movement of the seminar areas to the seating at the south end of the Westman Place Arena. In 2010 one of the seminar areas was moved to this location. For 2011 look for both seminars in the south end seating. More details elsewhere in these pages and you can also check the map in this show guide.

Draw Prize Last year we changed our door prize draw to a free draw for a trip for four to Disney World in Florida. It was quite popular so we’ve decided to keep it for another year. It will include round trip airfare from Winnipeg to Orlando, Florida; seven nights accommodation in a Disney Park Resort; Transfers from Airport to Resort (round trip); five day Disney Park Hopper Passes. Sponsors for this draw are McPhail Travel, Carberry and CKLQ radio. Look for draw drums adjacent to the information booths at the show. Draw coupons are included in this show guide along with more details. 46

Bull Congress This year’s Bull Congress is the largest we have seen so far since moving into the new facilities a few years ago. The show has reached a point now where not all entries could be accommodated so there are now several on a waiting list. The biggest change has been the addition of several exhibitors from Saskatchewan. There are about 30 exhibitors in this year’s show. Look for the complete list elsewhere in the show guide. The Bull Congress will be back in Barn 3 near the north end of the Keystone Centre.

Kick-Off Breakfast For the past few years we’ve offered a kick-off breakfast on the first day and we are pleased to do that again. The breakfast will be in the Roadhouse Inn in the Canad Inn on Tuesday, January 18, 2011 starting at 7:30 a.m. until 8:45. The cost of the breakfast will be one dollar and the proceeds will go to Ag in the Classroom. Sponsor of the event once again is the Canad Inn. It’s open to show visitors and exhibitors alike.

More Upgrades for the Website The Ag Days website continues to undergo improvements. One of the major changes taking place is the move to be able to provide more services to exhibitors on-line. When completed exhibitors will be able to receive most of the information about the show including floor plans, move-in details, registration forms, etc. by going to and following the exhibitor log-in. For those planning on visiting the show most of the information you need should be available whether it is the exhibitor list, seminar schedule, information about Brandon or other details - just go to 47

Agri Marketing


The Agri Marketing Centre will be back at Ag Days this year but in its more traditional location in Salon A on Main Street. This is a semi private venue funded by private industry and government sponsors. It provides a venue for exhibitors and visiting industry professionals to meet to learn about export planning, market profiles, international buyers/visitors and government supported programs. It also serves as an internet cafÊ for exhibitors as well as a message centre. The operation of the Agri Marketing Centre is handled by Bill Teerhuis from Manitoba Trade and Investment. Bill has been doing this since the Centre’s inception in 1991 and has worked to develop the Agri Marketing Centre and expand the services it provides to exhibitors at the show. In his role with Manitoba Trade and Investment Bill travels to trade shows in other countries and has promoted Ag Days at these events. Ag Days attracts delegations and other visitors from outside Canada every year and the Agri Marketing Centre plays an important role hosting these visitors and serving as a point of contact while they are at the show. In the past few years we’ve had delegations from countries such as the USA, Russia, Ukraine and others. Bill and his team make sure these visitors get to meet with the exhibitors, etc. that are most pertinent to their visit. Among the services to exhibitors at the show provided by the Agri Marketing Centre are early morning seminars related to developing their business and marketing.

Manitoba Ag Days

ABOVE: the Ag Days Board at the 2010 show.

The 2011 show will be the 34th for Manitoba Ag Days. The first show in 1978 was the Weed Fair – one day in Brandon and one day in Winnipeg with a total of 60 exhibitors, a few speakers and 3000 visitors. Since 1993 it has been a three day event in Brandon. Attendance last year was over 36,000. For 2011 there will be about 520 exhibitors. Ag Days is a non-profit corporation comprised of representatives from various parts of the Ag industry including farmers, agri-business and government. The show is completely self supporting and

financed by exhibitor fees and the sponsors you see listed near the beginning of this publication. There are presently two Co-chairmen – Scott Perkin, a producer from Elgin, MB and representative with Arysta Lifescience and Jonothon Roskos, a grain producer from Dufresne, MB. Day to day management of the show is handled through the Ag Days office in Brandon. If you would like more details about the organization visit the website at

Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program Request for Proposals

They’re friendly and enthusiastic and if they don’t know the answer to your question they are connected by radio to the show office. Norm Brown has been working at Ag Days for many years and has organized the crew very capably for the past two years.


Proposals are now being accepted for projects to be funded under the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program. Funded by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program (CAAP) is a five-year (2009-2014), $163 million program aimed at helping the sector adapt and remain competitive. CAAP provides an industry-led innovative and cooperative approach to funding projects at the national, multi-regional and regional levels. In Manitoba this program is delivered by the Manitoba Rural Adaptation Council (MRAC). We encourage project proposals that explore alternative energy, climate change, environmental, traceability or value chain solutions, which support MRAC’s Priority Plan.

The Ag Days


The Ag Days tradeshow is strictly an agricultural event. While many agricultural trade shows do make some allowance for other products such as household wares, clothing or cars Ag Days has chosen not to go this route. Ag Days policy requires all displays to be of an agricultural nature. This suits farm visitors as they know the displays they are going to see are pertinent to their farm business. It also appeals to exhibitors as they know the crowd visiting the show are potential customers.

This year’s trade show is again over 500 exhibits strong. It is not always easy to get a completely accurate number since sometimes an exhibitor will share their booth. If you are looking for an exhibitor that is not listed in the show guide check with our information people. They often have a list of exhibitors who may be in the show with someone else.

Ag Days has always prided itself on being a showcase for new ideas and a place where the latest technology is on display. Inventors’ Showcase has been a part of Ag Days for more than 20 years. It’s not a large area - usually in the range of 10 to 20 exhibitors – but it has always been a major attraction at the show. Sometimes the exhibitors are large companies but more often it is an individual or a small company with a new idea. To qualify for Inventors’ Showcase the product can’t have been sold in Manitoba for more than two years. You can find Inventors’ Showcase in the Westman Place Arena.

south end of the arena floor. The inventions are judged on opening day and the winners recognized with a plaque and prizes. The New Products Feature was an idea we started three years ago. Exhibitors who enter their new product into this feature are identified in a special listing in this guide. You will also see a “New Products” sign placed on their display. These products are also judged and there is a plaque awarded to the best new product. They are not all in one location as the new inventions so you need to look at the list and look for the signage.

not move the second theatre there as well? That’s the plan for Ag Days 2011. The theatres will be side by side, each comprising of two sections of arena seating. This will provide about the same amount of seating as last year for the main seminar room and about twice as much for the second. Overcrowding has often been a complaint for our second seminar room as we haven’t been able to use a room large enough to house the crowds for the more popular speakers. If you are looking for the seminar rooms go to the upper level of the Keystone Centre (top of the ramp) and take one of the doors into the Westman Place Arena. Follow the concourse past the displays to the south end. Look for the signage designating Theatres 1 & 2.

Board Room


MAIN CONCOURSE (BOOTH DISPLAYS) So if one theatre works ok in the south end seating then why

The amphitheatre in the Keystone Centre housed the main seminar room for many years at Ag Days. For the 2010 show we were advised it would no longer be available making it necessary to consider other options. We moved the main seminar last year to the seating at the south end of the Westman Place Arena. It seemed risky at the time not knowing in particular how the sound would behave. In the end the change worked quite well. A production company was hired to install heavy duty, sound proof draping to surround the area, a stage was built and a local audio/visual company managed the sound. Sound and lighting inside the seminar theatre were good and we didn’t need to worry about sound escaping to disturb nearby exhibitors.
