Farming for Profit draws 150 farmers to Kucera in Alvinston
Case IH, Salford, GLASI and others update on best practices
By Farms.com Media Team
After a year off, Kucera’s Farm Supply’s “Farming for Profit” event returned today – and some 150 farmers packed the house to see best-practices for maximizing yields and profits, with planting season straight ahead.
“We are really pleased to have such a great turnout today,” said Jenn Vosbourgh, who works in admin with Kucera’s Service Team in Alvinston, Ontario.
Vosbourgh helped promote the day through her expertise in social media, while the Kucera Group also generated interest at the recent London Farm Show.
Case IH, Salford, and Valmar brought in speakers and equipment for the day, along with the Great Lakes Agricultural Stewardship Initiative (commonly known as GLASI), which is an Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association program focused on farmland health and the Lake Erie and Lake St. Clair watershed, and the Lake Huron southeast shores watershed.
Kucera’s Laurie Lightfoot said she noted lots of farmer interest in the Salford BBI spreader, which was displayed inside the shop, “with the tillage equipment set up outside.”
The event runs from 9:30 am to 2 pm, and the concept of farming for “PROFIT” was outlined as below.
