Thousands of people have already enjoyed in the 99th annual International Plowing Match.

It continues today in Waterloo Region with 200 acres of plowing demonstrations and other events as well as exhibits.

Chairman David Pyper says if you plan to visit today or tomorrow -- it's easy to find.

Many local residents were at last night's annual Queen of the Furrow Banquet.

There is also a tent City -- featuring hundreds of vendors and crafts people.

And Pyper tells us the cooking demonstrations are back this year.

Tomorrow is the final day for the IPM.

There are also Fall Fairs in our region this weekend.

The Tiverton Fall Fair opens tonight with the Ambassador competition and the fair continues tomorrow.

The Rocklyn Fall Fair is beign held tomorrow.

The Stratford Fall Fair began yesterday and continues until Sunday.

Health officials in Alberta are investigating five cases of E. coli infections in people -- but so far, they are not linked to the massive recall of ground beef.

A new report says the Canadian food manufacturing industry is having a tough year.

The Conference Board of Canada says a slow recovery in Canada's key export market of the United States is part of the problem.

And it says commodity prices are up due to drought -- which is expected to lower corn and soybean yields in a big way.
