Length: 00:57

Today is Opening day for the 52 annual Grey Bruce farmers week.

It is on at the Elmwood community centre right thru Sunday.

Today is Beef Day.

There are information sessions on "alternative feed sources for cows" along with farm safety videos on "grain augers and tractor safety".

Thursday is Dairy day at Grey Bruce Farmers week.

Friday is Goat Day, followed by sheep day on Saturday and Horse day on Sunday.


The U.S. Centres for Disease Control is reporting that 17 people have been stricken with E. coli food poisoning.

It follows a similar situation in Canada where more than 30 people have been sickened, with Newfoundland and Nova Scotia having the most cases.

Preliminary results show that the type of E. coli making people sick in both countries is closely related genetically.

The Public Health Agency of Canada also says the cases here have a highly-similar DNA profile and it has identified romaine lettuce as the likely source.

But the officials on both sides of the border have yet to name a company or state where the romaine originated.
