Drought Preparation
Featuring: Dr. John McKinnon and Graeme FinnIn 2018, drought conditions negatively impacted beef production in Canada, and severely impacted in some locations globally. Projections suggest that the frequency and severity of drought will continue to increase in several areas that are already dry, such as the Southern Interior of British Columbia and the Prairie provinces.Whether in the form of pasture, stored forage, or supplements, feed is the largest variable input cost in cow-calf operations. A big challenge is to feed the cow in a way that meets her current and future nutritional requirements for maintenance, lactation, and reproduction as cost effectively as possible. This challenge is obviously much greater during drought, when feed is scarce and expensive. This session will uncover ways to prepare your operation to lessen the impact of dry conditions on cattle and forages.

Featuring: Chef Shonah Chalmers, Humber College; and Dr. June Matthews, Associate Professor in Food & Nutritional Sciences, Brescia College at the University of Western Ontario

Ethical eating is becoming one of the key decision factors when it comes to food selection, and as such, consumers seek to understand where their food comes from and how production practices impact animal well being and climate change. As discussions about food often come back to dietitians and culinary leaders like chefs, these professions find themselves tasked to answer questions about sustainable food and agriculture practices,
often without formal education or training on these topics. Come learn about the programs these educators are leading and their efforts to build constructive conversations about agriculture in the Canadian context.
