Canadians looking for the real story about their food can now visit five additional farms and food processing facilities in virtual reality.

Using 360° cameras and virtual reality technology, the FarmFood360° website gives Canadians the chance to tour real, working farms and food processing plants, without having to put on workboots or biosecurity clothing. It’s the latest version of the highly successful Virtual Farm Tours initiative, which was first launched by Farm & Food Care in 2007.

Farm & Food Care teams in both Ontario and Saskatchewan partnered with Gray Ridge Eggs, CropLife Canada, Ontario Sheep Farmers and the Canada Mink Breeders Association to publish new virtual tours of a sheep farm, an enriched housing egg farm, an egg processing facility, a western Canadian grain farm and a mink farm. Visitors can access these tours on tablets and desktop computers, as well as through mobile phones and VR (Virtual Reality) viewers. Interviews with the farmers and plant employees have also been added.

“We know from experience that bringing Canadians to the farm is a highly effective way to connect people with their food and those who produce it. The same certainly goes for food processors. But unfortunately, many Canadians never have the chance to visit either a farm or a food processing facility. Utilizing this new camera technology helps us take this tried-and-true outreach method to a much wider audience,” says Kelly Daynard, executive director of Farm & Food Care Ontario. The website now gets almost a million visitors a year, enabling many more Canadians to visit farms from the comfort of their own home.

These new additions – as well as three dairy farm and food processing tours published earlier in 2017 – were launched as part of an interactive exhibit at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. More tours will be filmed and added to the FarmFood360° library in 2018.

“So many Canadian farmers grow grain. Touring a Saskatchewan farm that grows crops like canola and wheat showcases the technology and innovation that farmers use every day on their farms,” says Nadine Sisk, vice-president of communications and member services for CropLife Canada. She added, “The videos also highlight the care that grain farmers put into their work, and the food they produce while at the same time ensuring that they take care of the environment.”

Farm & Food Care is a coalition of farmers, agriculture and food partners proactively working together to earn public trust and confidence in food and farming. Find out more at www.FarmFood360.ca or www.FarmFoodCare.org.

The Organic Agricutural Complex at Cégep de Victoriaville is seeking Canada’s budding organic farmers. The school, home to a three-year technical program in agricultural study, is preparing an additional 4,400 sq. m in new facilities that include ultra-modern greenhouses, along with an investment in state-of-the-art equipment and an increase in room outdoors for young farmers to do their work.

Until recently, most of the CEGEP’s experimental farming had been done off their property, which limited research possibilities. In 2016, the school invested $550,000 to acquire 55 hectares now dedicated to development, crop breeding and vegetable production.Thanks in part to a $4.28-million grant from the federal government, which was matched by private donations and provincial funding, the complex should fully open its doors in 2018. Once complete, it will be among the largest agricultural campuses in the country. For the full story, click here

High performance, consistency and convenience are three increasingly important attributes to Western Canadian farmers as they manage more acres with the same or fewer resources. In 2018, Arylex Active herbicides will not only make life easier for farmers at spray time, the benefits can last year round with the Go4Arylex Contest.

Dow AgroSciences Arylex active herbicides: Pixxaro, Paradigm, Cirpreme XC and Rexade are changing the way farmers think about spraying their crops. Arylex active is a new, powerful Group 4 active that enables farmers to ‘just go’ so they can spray when they want, in the conditions they’ve got.

“These products were designed to deliver excellent weed control regardless of timing - controlling a wide range of small or large weeds with the crop safety to allow flexible crop staging,” explains Kelly Bennett, category leader, west crops herbicides, Dow AgroSciences Canada. “They also have the ability to move in the plant and be effective during stressful or less than ideal climatic conditions. This means Arylex active works anytime during the season on the farmer's schedule, not just Mother Nature's, simplifying the herbicide decision and adding efficiency to get spraying done sooner. It's really worry-free broadleaf weed control."

Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Ralph Goodale, on behalf of Federal Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, Lawrence MacAulay, and Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister, Lyle Stewart, recently announced $7.7 million in funding for 30 crop-related research projects through Saskatchewan’s Agriculture Development Fund (ADF).

In addition, the governments are committing $6.25 million in operating funds to the Crop Development Centre (CDC) at the University of Saskatchewan over five years through the Agriculture Development Fund.

This year’s projects are diverse and focus on issues important to Saskatchewan agriculture. Some examples include: research to develop more clubroot resistant canola varieties; improve fusarium head blight resistance in durum wheat; better control of root rot in pea and lentils crops; and increasing the use of faba beans in pet food and fish feed to create another value-added use for a Saskatchewan pulse crop.

The Agriculture Development Fund announcement into the 30 research projects leverages significant additional funding from industry partners, in addition to government funding. More than $3.1 million has been committed from the following partners: the Western Grains Research Foundation, the Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission, the Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission, the Saskatchewan Pulse Growers, the Saskatchewan Flax Development Commission and the Saskatchewan Barley Development Commission.

“Investing in these innovative, crop-related projects not only provides Saskatchewan farmers and ranchers with the very latest in research and development, but it allows our province to be competitive on the world stage and helps us keep attracting some of the best researchers in the industry. We’re very proud to invest in Agriculture Development Fund year after year as it creates future growth opportunities and results in enhanced knowledge, information and technology for producers and food processors," said Lyle Stewart, Saskatchewan Minister of Agriculture in a press release.

After 32 years of representing the interests of all agricultural and industrial flax interests, the Flax Council of Canada’s Executive Committee regrets to announce the closure of its office at 465-167 Lombard Avenue in Winnipeg, effective January 31, 2018.

The Flax Council of Canada will continue to operate on a reduced service basis.

The Flax Council of Canada is a national organization, funded by a voluntary export levy. Established in 1986, the Flax Council promotes the advancement of Canadian flax and flax products including nutritional and industrial uses in domestic and international markets.

“Over the course of the past year, the formation of a combined oilseed council was thoroughly discussed at the request of some of our members that contribute significant levy dollars to the Council. Through these discussions, it became apparent that the formation of an oilseed council would not materialize in the foreseeable future. The result of this is a significant loss of funding to the Council, necessitating cost reduction measures.”

Recognizing the importance of a national voice, further dialogue will be needed to see what opportunities may lay ahead as the flax industry decides the merit of a national organization.

The Flax Council played a key role in managing the aftermath following the detection of CDC Triffid seed in shipments to the EU, providing financial support to significant testing protocols in an effort to remove Triffid from the seed supply in Canada.

Since 2013, the Flax Council has managed more than 6.2 million dollars in research and market development programs with the support of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Manitoba Agriculture, Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture and both the Saskatchewan Flax Development Commission and Manitoba Flax Growers Association.

The Flax Council Executive and Board of Directors wishes to thank its staff who have worked hard and with professionalism for the flax industry during their time with the Flax Council of Canada. We wish them well in their future endeavours.

Matt Dykerman hopes that creating a division of Farm & Food Care in Prince Edward Island will help teach Islanders where their food comes from, including family farms like his.

“Sometimes in the business, farmers like myself can forget to share our stories with the people who are consuming the fruits of our labour,” says Dykerman, owner of Red Soil Organics in Brookfield. “I am hopeful that Farm & Food Care PEI will engage consumers in a meaningful discussion on how food is produced and the hard work that goes into making it grow.”

Farm & Food Care is a coalition of farmers, agriculture and food partners and government working together to provide credible information on food and farming. Prince Edward Island is the third Canadian province to launch the organization, and the provincial government will invest $100,000 in it over the next year. For the full story, click here.

The Canadian Federation of Agriculture (CFA) is pleased to see that Finance Canada has considered the feedback contributed by CFA and other farm groups with regard to the Tax Fairness proposals, and has proposed changes that have addressed a number of the key concerns identified by Canadian farm businesses.

Since the government announced these proposed rules, CFA has raised continued concerns with potential consequences to intergenerational farm transfers, and is pleased to see that capital gains from qualified farm property would be excluded from Tax on Split Income. CFA is also pleased to see further clarification and definition on the contributions required for both capital and labour, and looks forward to further dialogue with government officials to ensure the diverse contributions of farm family members are adequately accounted for.

"This announcement provides greater clarity on Income Sprinkling and CFA looks forward to continued engagement with Finance Canada and the Canada Revenue Agency to ensure application of the rules is streamlined, clearly communicated and applied in a clear, objective fashion for all businesses," says CFA president Ron Bonnett.

"I believe the progress we've seen on this front, since the initial announcement in July, shows that collaboration and communication are critical for effective policy-making. We believe these changes are important for shaping Canada's tax policy to enable the continued success of family farms in Canada, including the next generation of young farmers," added Bonnett.

CFA awaits draft legislation and will fully analyze the proposed changes once a bill is introduced in Parliament. CFA maintains concerns that the implementation timelines are very tight and don't give businesses much time to adapt. Farm leaders look forward to working with Finance Canada to ensure any remaining issues are adequately addressed.

"The Canadian government has set a huge goal of increasing agriculture exports to $75 billion by 2025. We need to ensure we get policies right to meet these ambitious growth targets. By continuing to work together, we can make Canada and Canadian food a true powerhouse in terms of feeding to world's growing population," said Bonnett.

We look forward to continued dialogue with Finance Canada to clarify these issues, and ensure further proposals align with the government's ambitious growth agenda for the sector.

Farm Management Canada (FMC) recently held its Agricultural Excellence Conference in Ottawa, Ontario where Darrell Wade was announced as the 2017 recipient of the prestigious Wilson Loree Award. Now in its fifteenth year, the Award honours individuals or groups who have made an extraordinary contribution to advancing agricultural business management practices in Canada.

Darrell is the founder of Farm Life Financial Planning Group, which helps clients across Ontario find stability on their farm and ensure the farm can live on for future generations to come.

Darrell grew up on his family farm in southern Ontario. His father, like so many farmers today, didn't take the time to plan for the "what ifs" with his professional team, and didn't communicate his intentions to the rest of the farm family. With his sudden passing at the age of 65, there was no way to continue the family farm business. Darrell joined the financial services industry where he now dedicates his time to helping other family-owned farms implement customized farm transition plans. His mission is to ensure no other family experiences a loss like his family did.

He is certified through the Canadian Association of Farm Advisors and recently became a certified Family Enterprise Advisor (FEA), making him one of Ontario's only CAFA (Canadian Association of Farm Advisors) certified advisors with this designation. They now live on a farm east of Peterborough.

Wilson Loree personally presented the award to Darrell at the Agricultural Excellence Conference. "Many of our award recipients have been at the end of their careers, but as this is the 25th anniversary of Farm Management Canada, it seems very fitting to recognize someone who is making a significant impact in an area of business management early in their career who has many more years to continue to position farmers for success," said Wilson. "It's great to see that there are new folks entering the farm business management family - a sign of renewal and continuity for a prosperous future for Canadian agriculture."

"It is truly an honour to be recognized by Wilson and Farm Management Canada for the work we are doing in educating farm families on the importance of continuity planning," Wade said. "Farm families today are making a commitment to protect their legacy and educate the next generation. I am humbled to be a part of their process."

Wilson Loree retired as Branch Head of Agriculture Business Management after 27 years with Alberta Agriculture, Food and Rural Development. Wilson is cited as "an individual who exemplifies innovation, wisdom, and a constant focus on the farm manager and the farm family." Currently Wilson resides in Calgary, Alberta.

The 2017 winner of the Robert L. Ross Memorial Scholarship is Sarah Jackson of Camlachie, Ont. The award will allow Sarah to attend the upcoming 2018-2019 CTEAM program. The announcement was made at the AgEx Conference, held in Ottawa, Ont.

CTEAM (Canadian Total Excellence in Agricultural Management) is managed by Agri-Food Management Excellence (AME). During the program, farmers learn detailed financial, marketing and human relations management skills, using their own operation as a case study.

Robert (Bob) Ross was instrumental in guiding the CTEAM program, inspiring and encouraging farm management excellence across Canada through his leadership and passion for the agricultural community. Bob fought a courageous battle with cancer, passing in March 2014.

As a tribute to his passion, leadership and legacy, Agri-Food Management Excellence, Farm Management Canada, Family Farms Group and the Ross Family, established the Robert L. Ross Memorial Scholarship program, rewarding a deserving farmer with the opportunity to participate in the CTEAM program. Attending the CTEAM program allows motivated farmers to continue on a path towards excellence, as inspired by Canada’s leading experts and a one-of-a-kind support network of peers and colleagues.

About the Winner
Sarah Jackson is the third generation to farm on her family’s 200 acre property in Camlachie, Ont., where she runs Uplands Pheasantry, a hatchery that specializes in pheasants, partridge, quail, and wild turkeys, in addition to supplying mature birds to conservation areas and hunting preserves across North America. After the sudden passing of her father and business partner in 2016, Sarah’s role on the farm immediately evolved into main operations manager, customer service specialist, and strategic decision maker for the niche business.

By attending the CTEAM program, Sarah hopes to gain the knowledge and skills she needs to strengthen Upland Pheasantry’s strategic and operations planning, as well as guide the difficult process of succession planning for her family’s farm. Sarah is also excited to be able to use the knowledge and experience she gains through CTEAM to influence her advisory and advocacy work with the Lambton Federation of Agriculture. Ultimately, Sarah hopes to use her experience at CTEAM to shape her farm’s future, building a successful business that one day her own daughter could take over, if she wishes.

Back for its third year, the Grassland Stewardship Program (GSP) will begin accepting applications in early January 2018.

The program supports on-farm conservation activities that benefit Bobolink and other grassland birds at risk, and is piloting the use of Conservation Agreements. GSP is delivered by the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association (OSCIA) and is funded by Environment and Climate Change Canada as part of their Species at Risk Partnerships on Agricultural Lands (SARPAL) initiative.

The Bobolink is a ground-nesting grassland bird that can be found in hay and pasture fields across Ontario. It has been designated as a species at risk both provincially and federally due to its rapidly declining population. “Farmers’ stewardship actions are critical to the survival of Bobolink, which depends to a great extent on farmland for habitat” said Andréa Dubé-Goss, Environmental Programs Manager at OSCIA. “GSP provides funding to support farmers’ efforts to protect and restore agricultural grassland habitat.”

GSP supports four best management practices that play a key role in maintaining Bobolink and other grassland bird habitat, which includes both tame and native hayfields and pastures. Supported practices include: Control of Encroaching Trees and Shrubs through Mowing, Grassland Restoration, Incorporating Delayed Grazing into Rotational Grazing Systems, and Forage Harvest Management (Delayed Haying).

The SARPAL initiative is piloting the use of Conservation Agreements as a mechanism for supporting species at risk recovery through habitat protection on private agricultural lands. Program participants are required to sign a Conservation Agreement with Environment and Climate Change Canada.

Producers who wish to participate can apply online or on paper during two application submission periods:
  • Intake 1: January 10 – February 1, 2018
  • Intake 2: April 9 – May 1, 2018
Projects must be carried out between January 1 and December 15, 2018. The maximum funding available through GSP is $20,000 per farm business. For full program details, please visit: www.ontariosoilcrop.org/oscia-programs/sarpal/gsp.

Dairy Farmers and Outstanding Young Farmer (OYF) alumni from Ontario, Doug & Joan Cranston were recently honoured as recipients of the 2017 W.R. Motherwell Award by Canada's OYF program. 

Doug and Joan’s involvement in OYF began in 1995 when they were selected as honourees for the Ontario region, and have since held virtually every executive position in the program both provincially and nationally. Joan was the program manager for Canada’s OYF program for thirteen years and Doug served on the national board for eight years. They have served on numerous Ontario hosting committees and were instrumental in attaining AAFC sponsorship of the program. Doug and Joan think of the OYF as their second family and treasure the many friendships gained over the last 22 years.

Besides operating a dairy farm, they also sell sweet corn at a roadside market and have a six horse hitch they have shown across North America. They have sold cattle and embryos to many countries around the world. Doug has judged many horse shows and they have hosted over 10,000 visitors since building their compost pack barn.

They are now happy to have their son working with them on the farm so they can enjoy some much deserved time away from the farm and their many volunteer activities such as their local fair board, Holstein, Milk, and Clydesdale committees.

Ontario alumni members nominated Doug and Joan because they feel the program has benefitted greatly from their dedication, hard work and enthusiasm. They go on to say Doug and Joan’s generous donation of time and leadership has provided a positive platform to celebrate and recognize progress and excellence in agriculture.

Dr. Motherwell, the namesake of the W.R. Motherwell Award, was born near Perth, Ontario in 1860. His leadership in Canadian agriculture spanned more than 50 years and he is regarded by many as the "grand old man of Canadian agriculture." His career highlights include minister of agriculture in Saskatchewan's first provincial government, and minister of agriculture for Canada in the 1920s. Having attended agricultural college in Guelph, Ontario, his move to Saskatchewan resulted in his instrumental role in establishing the agriculture facility at the University of Saskatchewan. Dr. Motherwell died in 1943 at the age of 83.

On the 25th anniversary of the OYF program, the W.R. Motherwell Award was established. The award is presented annually, on behalf of OYF alumni across Canada, to an individual or couple who has demonstrated excellence in leadership and dedication to both the OYF program and Canadian agriculture.

More information about the OYF W.R. Motherwell Award is available at www.oyfcanada.com under Nominations. The deadline for nominations for the 2018 award is March 31, 2018.
