Ag Transportation Issues Discussed In Winnipeg

The annual Fields on Wheels Conference was held Friday in Winnipeg.
 
The event, which focuses on transportation issues in the agriculture industry, has been running for 24 years. It is put on by the University of Manitoba's Transport Institute.
 
Dr. Barry Prentice is the organizer for the event.
 
"Twenty-four years ago, nobody was talking very much about processing anything," he said. "We've got a change in focus I think in terms of our agriculture and a change in focus in terms of creating more jobs and tax revenues to pay for everything else...One thing we do see that's constant is, the issues of logistics in transport never go away."
 
The focus this year was logistics and value-added processing of field crops: the veggie burger revolution.
