Grey Bruce Farmers Week

By

The 45th annual event starts tomorrow and runs until next Monday.


Length:

The 45th annual Grey Bruce Farmers Week is all set to begin.

Officials with Grey County Ag Services will be setting up at the Elmwood Community Centre today.

The six day conference begins tomorrow and continues to Monday January 10th.

It will begin with Beef Day and end with Crops Day -- and in between -- other farm sectors will be highlighted including dairy, goats, sheep and horses.

There are also over 85 exhibitors at the trade show and dozens of speakers -- including Ontario Ag Minister Carol Mitchell -- who will speak tomorrow.

The new directors on the Canadian Wheat Board are about to get down to business.

But don't expect a change in the single desk marketing system.

Four out of five representatives chosen in the board director elections are advocates of the current marketing structure.

Of the 10 farmer-elected board representatives, 8 are single desk supporters.

--------------

Photographers who believe they have a prize winning image are invited to submit their entry to the Canadian Wheat Board's annual calendar contest.

The theme for the 2011-12 calendar is "A slice of life'' -- with images that represent a favourite memory, experience, or place.

Winning photos will be awarded prizes and gain a spot in the crop-year calendar.

--------------

Grain prices could soon be going up again at the elevator.

The Canadian Wheat Board is recommending the federal government again raise initial grain prices.

If approved, initial prices would jump 33 dollars to 54 dollars a tonne.
