Length: 1:19

Grey Ag Services is continuing to offer Winter Courses to producers and rural residents in Grey and Bruce Counties.

The second in the series is tomorrow, Wednesday Feb. 7th.

It's a Farm Finance workshop called "Putting it all together for profit."

The workshop will include information about working with a banker and understanding what they want, business financing and operational solutions along with general tax advice for farmers.

Sponsored by FCC and BDO Canada LLP, the workshop also looks at succession planning and the young farmer loan program.

The "Putting it all together for profit" workshop goes from 9:30am to 3pm tomorrow at the Grey Ag Services office on Toronto street south in Markdale.

The cost is 25 dollars per person.


The London Dairy Congress is running tomorrow and Thursday with more than 100 organizations and 10 guest speakers sharing the latest innovations and ideas in the dairy industry.

One of the new sessions revolves around mental health within the agricultural community.

Gary Hazeleger, a dairy farmer and co-founder of Natural Motion Health & Training Centre, will participate in a panel discussion about mental health.

He says the fact that a mental health discussion is taking place at a farm show indicates how far the industry has come in acknowledging the illness.

The London Dairy Congress is at the Metroland Media Agriplex in London. (Ont.)

Tickets can be purchased at the door or online for $15.
