Length: 1:26

The Canadian Food Inspection agency has added even more products to the cross country beef recall.

The news comes as the Harper Conservatives remains under fire for the possible E.coli contamination at Alberta's X-L Foods.

Prime Minister Harper says his government has added 700 food inspectors since 2006.

There are 13 reported cases of E. coli infection in Saskatchewan and 10 in Alberta -- officials are checking to see if they are all linked to the beef recall.


There are also two upcoming Environmental Farm Plan workshops in Bruce County.

One is being held in Tara on Friday and the other is set for next Wednesday in Walkerton.

The workshops will help farmers who want to apply for Grassland Habitat funding.

The money can help with wetland restoration, rotational grazing, reseeding pastures and fencing sensitive areas like waterways and woodlots.

The deadline for funding applications is October 15th.

For more information -- or to register -- call Jayne at 367-5930.


Farmers can go back into the classroom this week.

Grey County Agricultural Services is holding a Growing Your Farm Profits workshop.

It begins tomorrow and continues next Thursday.

The workshops are free, and help you plan for the future of your farming operation.

You also can learn how to share costs of some projects.

You must register to attend -- call Cheryl at 367-5587.
