It was my pleasure this morning to welcome students and sponsors of the 2010 CanACTOklahoma State University agricultural communications exchange program. The CanACT members travelled to Oklahoma State during Guelph’s Reading Week in February; now, the Oklahoma students are in Guelph to take part in College Royal, farm tours and other events.

Thanks to Ross Wallace at Kubota Canada Ltd., Steven Larmer at the Students Federation of the Ontario Agricultural College, Claire Cowan and Erin Fletcher of the Grain Farmers of Ontario,  Lianne Appleby of the Ontario Cattlemen’s Association,  Ian Rumbles of the OAC Alumni Association and Dean Rob Gordon of the Ontario Agricultural College for their support of the exchange, as well as the Dairy Farmers of Ontario.

Tomorrow we’re heading out for farm tours, including a beef farm. The photo below is an Ontario beef farm, courtesy of the Ontario Farm Animal Council photo library.
