The 50th Grey Bruce Farmers Week continues this weekend at the Elmwood Community Centre.

Today is Goat Day.

And one of the organizers, Lorie Smith, says they have co-ordinated a special panel for Friday afternoon about the future of the goat industry.

Doctor Gosia Zobel from New Zealand will also speak about kid rearing practices and giving goats the best start.

Saturday is Sheep Day -- and there will be presentations on animal care, chronic disease and immigration trends.

There is also a sheep marketing panel that focuses on profit.

Sunday is Horse Day where there's an adult and youth program.

One of the sessions on Horse Day is the growing sport of carriage driving.

The trade show also continues all weekend.

The weekend registration begins at 9 AM.
