Ecological Day at Farmers Week

By Manny Paiva

There will be many presentations on the day, including the latest grazing and pasture research.

Length: 1:12

The 49th annual Grey Bruce Farmers Week continues today at the Elmwood Community Centre -- and today is Ecological Day.

It use to be an evening session in previous years -- but it has now grown to a full day session at the seven day conference.

Co-organizer Ray Robertson tells us it has become a popular day for farmers.

There will be some direct marketing sessions this morning.

Tony McQuail will also discuss holistic grazing -- and after lunch, Jack Kyle of OMAFRA will share the latest grazing and pasture research.

The producer panel at 3:15 today will highlight the operations of three organic and ecological farms.

Tomorrow is the final day for Grey Bruce Farmers Week -- and it is Crops Day.

On the weekend hundreds of people attended Goat Day on Friday, Sheep Day on Saturday and Horse Day yesterday.


The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is recalling Granny Smith and Gala apples because of a possible listeria contamination.

The apples were sold under the Big B and Granny's Best brands labels.

They were sold in Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador.

They may look safe, but if you have any, you should throw them out or return to the store where you bought them.
