Over a million dollars in funding is being given to A-and-L Biologicals.

Field trials will initially commence in Ontario, but will later be extended to other corn-growing regions in Quebec and Manitoba.


Chefs in two dozen restaurants across Canada are competing this month with signature dishes all incorporating the same homegrown ingredient -- lentils.

The restaurants have added the creations to their menus for customers to order and vote on during the FunDeLentil competition.

If you missed the news last week -- the world's tallest cow died on a farm in northern Illinois after holding the record for less than a year.

Pat Hanson says his 6-foot-4 Holstein called Blosom died.

Hanson says she's not sure what was wrong with Blosom, but that she had the 13 year old Holstein put down after two veterinarians said they couldn't save her.

Hanson adds Blosom was buried in her favourite pasture.
