Check out some great Agriculture events below!


Agriculture Awareness Displays abound in the Entertainment/Agriculture Tent

Agricultural Awareness Agricultural Awareness 2

Dairy Farmers of Ontario display is on site Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with loads of information, handouts etc. on the dairy industry in Ontario. The youth may enjoy milking a ”cow”. HINT - bring Grandpa and Grandma along to show you how and to share their stories of fun in the byre.

Stop a while and watch the chickens. This is a chance to see poultry up close and to learn about some of their habits.

Chat with the Lanark Dairy Educator and learn how the dairy industry and its many products affect our daily lives.

Static Displays

The educational, interactive displays throughout the tent and commerce building will test your knowledge of all things agriculture. How much does a cow drink in one day? How many stomachs does a cow have? Can you find the hen’s tooth? How is honey made?

Now that your curiosity has been peeked by the displays - stay for a show – “ASK A FARMER”


Ask A Farmer

Show Times – Throughout the Weekend

Ask all those agricultural questions you have always wanted answers to or just sit back and listen to the presentation.

On your way to the fair you may notice crops that definitely are not the traditional crops of corn and grains. Fields of sorghum and soybean are becoming a common sight in Lanark County. You may get an opportunity to handle crops such as soybean, oats, barley, and wheat.

Ever wondered how grass in the field becomes milk on your cereal, how eggs get to your breakfast plate – come “ask the farmers”!

Does the chicken's comb and wattle have a practical function? - let's "ask a farmer"!
