The provincial government and the Grain Farmers of Ontario have had their day in court.

Both presented arguments in the case as the G-F-O seeks a stay of the new seed treatment regulations.

The Grain Farmers argue the regulations are not workable and would have a negative impact on the future of grain farming in Ontario.

G-F-O Chair Mark Brock says the judge has reserved judgement in the case and did not say when he'll make his decision.


The 50th World Dairy Expo is being held in Madison, Wisconsin.

More than 75 thousand people will attend the week long event that features elite cattle show and sales, educational seminars and tours and cutting edge technology.

Among those in attendance is Lowell Lindsay of the Guelph area.

He is being inducted into the National Dairy Shrine in the Pioneer Category.

Lindsay was raised in the Markdale area and had an outstanding career as a dairy showman.

He was also involved in Gencor and the United Breeders as a sire selector and analyst.

Ted Clarke of BlanJoy Holsteins of Dundalk is also at the Expo.

He won an all expense paid trip by winning the Ontario Dairy Youth award.
