Audience members can expect the same high caliber speakers and tradeshow as ever

Grey Bruce Farmers’ Week (GBFW) is pleased to announce that its 57th annual event will be back to running in-person at the Elmwood Community Centre in January 2023. After COVID-19 forced a two year hiatus of in-person gathering, and lowered virtual attendance caused a one year cancellation of GBFW Horse Day, we are thrilled to tell the community that Horse Day will return on Sunday January 8th 2023, from 10 am to 4 pm.

Audience members can expect the same high caliber speakers and tradeshow as ever, not to mention look forward to the excellent hot beef on a bun lunch. For those further afield, the conference will be livestreamed and available for watching online as well.

New in 2023 will be an option to access presentation recordings for 30 days after the event. This is done through an online platform and comes as a legacy of our virtual conference years. Along with recordings of the live Horse Day presentations, there will be two on-demand presentations available for those 30 days. This adds additional content to the program without needing to lengthen the daily schedule. This year’s GBFW Horse Day program will include:

• Dr. Wendy Pearson from the University of Guelph

• Saddle Fitting for the Good of the Horse with Britt Blakely and Joyce Cameron

• The Top Five Things You Wouldn’t Want to Live Without In Your Barn with Jason Irwin, Dahna LaChance and Dr. John McKnight

• Looking Through the Eyes of a Horse: What Do They See? with Dr. Chantale Pinard

• Sampling Forages with Christine O’Reilly

• Dealing with Mud with Dwayne Job

More speakers and presentation topics will be announced as they are confirmed.

GBFW Horse Day is part of a weeklong program including Beef, Dairy, Goat, Sheep, Ecological and Crops Days. Programs are compiled by local commodity groups, truly making it a farmer’s conference run by farmers. Stay tuned to our website, which will be updated continually with program content, speaker biographies and more information as we move closer to the event:

What Our Clients Think

  • Horses are more secure and comfortable when trailering if they can face the rear, but they prefer openings.
