GFO: Grains in action

by Megan Wright

Grain Farmers of Ontario is looking for young farmers to participate in the 2020 Grains in Action program, January 27 — 30, 2020. Grains in Action is a three-day program featuring tours at  Ontario end-use facilities and presentations from agricultural researchers and Grain Farmers of Ontario staff.

Listen here:

 

The program is designed to create a peer network among young agricultural leaders and introduce them to the broader grain industry. If you are interested in attending the 2020 Grains in Action program, or would like to recommend a young agricultural leader, contact Mel Reekie at mreekie@gfo.ca.

Harvest season is a stressful time for farmers. Long hours in the field and worrying about the weather and crop condition can put a strain on your mental well-being. Grain Farmers of Ontario is hosting a farmer wellness webinar series to equip farmers with useful tools for stress management, getting better sleep, decreasing anxiety, and to stop worrying.

The next webinar, focusing on worry, will be held on October 16 at 10 a.m. For more information on each webinar and to register, visit gfo.ca.
