Time is running out to nominate the best and the brightest in Grey Bruce agriculture.

The nomination deadline for the annual Tommy Cooper award is Friday March 17th at Noon.

It is named after a 39 year veteran of local agriculture work, who served as a provincial government farm extension worker in Grey County.

Nomination forms are available at the Bruce and Grey Federations of Agriculture offices, and at our radio stations.

The award is presented by Bayshore Broadcasting and the Owen Sound Sun Times.

This year, the Tommy Cooper Award Ceremony will be held March 31st at 6:30 PM in the Elmwood Community Centre.  


Police say two calves are on the loose in the woods of Cape Cod after making a break from their owner.

The Boston Globe reports that the young cows have evaded capture since they bolted while being delivered to a farm a week ago.

Police say the calves fled across a golf course and into woods in the town of Harwich. Residents have reported seeing the pair, but attempts to capture them have failed.

Police officer Jack Burns says the calves are jittery because they're so young, and that they're faster than they look.


Stearns County authorities say a Freeport man drowned when the skid loader he was driving broke through the ice on an abandoned manure pit on his farm.

The sheriff's office says 46-year-old Duane Herzog was submerged for about 20 minutes before rescuers extricated him from the machine and pulled him from the water on Tuesday afternoon.

He died later at a hospital in Minneapolis.

The cause was listed as accidental drowning.
