Grey County Agricultural Services is signing up farmers for another Growing Your Farm Profits workshop.

The next session will be held November 16th and 23rd in Markdale.

The workshop's focus is to have farmers look at their operation with a business approach and to qualify for funding under the Growing Forward Initiative.

There is funding for farm financial assessments, business plans which might include succession planning or marketing and skills development.

Maple Leaf Foods returned to profitability in the third quarter -- posting a net profit of 43 million dollars.

That compares with a loss of 19.9 million dollars a year ago.

Canada's largest food processor says sales dipped two per cent to 1.26 billion dollars.

However -- after adjusting for the impacts of asset sales and a stronger Canadian dollar -- sales increased by six per cent.

It's primarily as a result of higher selling prices.
