Science of Sustainable Ag Expo at COFS
By New-Life Mills
August 12, 2016 - New-Life Mills, the animal feed division of Parrish & Heimbecker, Limited and P&H Eastern Grain Division have pooled resources to launch the new "Science of Sustainable Agriculture Expo" at this year’s Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show in Woodstock, Ont., which is being held from Sept. 13th-15th, 2016.
“It’s amazing how nearly every aspect of what we do in agriculture is connected on some level. We are among the most responsible of industries when it comes to ensuring nothing goes to waste,” says Sherry Slejska, marketing communications specialist, with New-Life Mills.
The exhibit will explore the elaborate connectedness of today’s agricultural world with sustainability in the forefront. The display at the Farm Show will be both educational for the inexperienced and eye-opening for the savvy farmer.
“To my knowledge, this will be the largest initiative P&H has ever started to show the community how deeply involved we are in helping them produce crops, market crops, transport crops and feed livestock through a spider web of interactions between Ontario’s livestock and cash crop growers as well as many other commercial players," says Jeff Jaques, of Parrish & Heimbecker. "We are involved in almost every step from fertilizing the crop to grinding it into flour and opening up their marketing opportunities to the world. Most farmers don’t realize that."
