  • Date conflicts restrict Beef Day to Dundas cattlemen
    By Catherine Thompson - AgriNews Staff Write

    Although Eastern Ontario Beef Day has been a tradition for the last six or seven years, this year's event will be replaced by the Dundas County Cattlemen's Beef Day on April 5 at the Winchester Arena.

    "A conglomeration of counties in Eastern Ontario and OMAFRA ran it last year. But attendance was down. There were too many things going on and there was a conflict with the bull sale. They decided to take a break," Nancy Noecker, Cow Calf Specialist with OMAFRA, told The AgriNews.

    Noecker added the annual Douglas Bull Sale held by Bob and Pat Dick at the Bull Test Station near the village of Douglas is usually on the same date as Eastern Ontario Beef Day.

    This year, it would have been on March 8.

    Organizer Rose Stewart, president of the Cattlemen's Association, said Dundas County Cattlemen's Beef Day will feature four speakers. They include Peter Kotzeft, a veterinarian with the Chelsea Veterinary Clinic, who will outline calf/cow herd health management.

    A representative of Laura Lean Beef, a lean meat company that supplies grocery stores, will discuss premium niche markets. Jim Clark, with the Ontario Cattle Feeders Association will treat the subject of corn-fed beef and OMAFRA speaker Dorene Collins, Guelph, will talk about Direct Farm Marketing and Agritourism. More details are being finalized.

    For additional information or to register, call Rose Stewart at 613-448-3454.
