Canada’s Dairy Capital Welcomes Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show

Cindy Zimmerman

Woodstock, ON is known as the Dairy Capital of Canada but is also home of Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show – the nation’s largest agricultural trade show.

From September 11 to 13, thousands of farmers flock to the show for its infamous demonstrations and 725 exhibitors.

New for 2012, FIVE robotic milking systems will be on display presenting the full scope of today’s options. The BriteSpan Dairy Innovation Centre, a fully operational barn, will showcase the DeLaval VMS Voluntary Milking System and Lely Astronaut A4 as they milk side-by-side. Farmers can also see the Astrea 20.20 robotic milking system from Ag-Co Products Ltd., MIone (Milking Intelligence) from GEA Farm Technologies and the MR-S1 Milking Robot from BouMaticRobotics Canada.

Since 1994, this annual event has built a hefty reputation as the one-stop-shop for new farm equipment and technology. For dairy crowds, it’s a must-see event.
