At this years Farm Progress Show in Regina the People’s Choice Farmyard Invention went to Darcy Goossen from Farintosh, AB for his Tiregrabber. Built for a Skid Steer, suspect it could also be used on most any Front-End Loader, this 3 point hydraulic system takes the backbreaking work out of trying to man handle large tires.

Good news for Canadian Farmers growing produce for store shelves! As posted by Chris Koger on June 28th in “The Packer”, https://www.thepacker.com/article/canadas-loblaws-pledges-buy-local?utm_source=Subscribe+to+FCC+email&utm_campaign=cb9903968d-FCC_Express_2018_07_06_EN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_ecca3657d7-cb9903968d-19267541 , Loblaws, the giant Canadian retailor run by CEO Galen Weston, in a June 27th news release voiced their continued support for Canadian grown fruits and vegetables. The company is pledging to spend an additional 150 Million per year by 2025 by continuing to purchase local when possible and through investment with our farmers into aid for infrastructure for greenhouses and other potential season extending possibilities. At present roughly half of the stores produce comes from a network of about 300 Canadian producers. This is good news as we have been far too reliant on our fruit and vegetable needs from out of country sources. Perhaps with new research/technology, continued support from companies like Loblaws, our various levels of Government, and of course ourselves as consumers, we will be able to make gains in helping our Canadian Produce Farmers become better positioned to supply more and more of our daily fruit and vegetable needs.
