Jeremy Ludyka and Trevor MacDonald recently exhibited in Windsor, NS at the Valley Spring Show. Several good wins were picked up.
The Guardian newspaper has advised us they will no longer be publishing the results of shows and exhibitions. This is very unfortunate as it has been a great way to give all show exhibitors some recognition, whether it be for showing cattle, poultry or pickles.
CLOSING COMMENTS After months of planning and lots of discussions, our 30th annual Spring Show is just a few days away. It is a milestone for any show to last for this long, as many shows have come and gone since we first hosted ur showin 1986. Even if you don’t have birds entered, please make an effort to come to Borden and see the show.
As I am sure most of you are aware, there have been outbreaks of avian influenza in commercial flocks in Ontario in the past month. This is a very serious matter and has caught the attention of poultry people across the country, both commercial and hobby farmers. As a result, several shows and sales have been postponed or cancelled. This has been a wise decision fromt hese clubs to do so. We can only hope that the situation does not occur here.
