Learn more about the issues that matter to Ontario’s 38,000 farmers in OFA’s latest issue of From the Field. OFA’s quarterly newsletter is one of the ways we communicate directly with provincial policymakers about the opportunities and the challenges facing Ontario farmers, farm businesses and rural communities.
Inside the spring 2019 issue of From the Field, OFA outlines the need for making agri-food and rural Ontario matter more to all levels of government – municipal, provincial and federal. There are unique needs for agricultural businesses and our rural communities that require all levels of government to step up with greater investments in our sector.
The latest issue highlights OFA’s campaign on animal activism, mental health strategies needed for the agriculture sector, changes to animal care enforcement services, changes to Endangered Species Act through the ag lens, OFA’s EBR activity report and a road safety reminder with helpful tips if you end up travelling behind a slow moving vehicle.
The newsletter also features details about OFA’s 2019 Field Day event at Gwillimdale Farms. OFA Field Day offers MPPs and their staff an opportunity to visit a local farm to learn more about the innovation and diversity of Ontario agriculture.
