|Russian ‘Dairy Rally’ checks out agriculture in City of Kawartha Lakes||Jul 19, 2018|
For the past 6 years, a consortium of members of the Russian dairy industry would drive, road rally style, around the county looking for new ways to improve the industry. This year, they came to Canada, and are working their way across the province, visiting dairy farms, milk processors and equipment suppliers.
Their first stop today was at Kawartha Holsteins, the farm of the McMorrow family near Lindsay. One of the rally members, Sandra Willer, organizes the largest farm show in Europe and is most impressed by the Ontario family farm.
“I”m impressed by the farmers [who] have a passion for farming,” Willer said. “They are very open to show us their farms, they [are] open to answering all questions: is it on feeding? Is it on genetics? Is it on ways of production?”
