The Ontario Yield Tour 2019
This year Shea Ag has sponsored the Ontario Yield Tour put on by Farms.com Risk Management team. Last year we took in the event, it was very informative and well worth the time. This year they have a lot of great speakers and live demonstrations that will be going on. National Corn grower winner Kevin Kalb will be speaking at the event. Kevin farms in Indiana where he was able to achieve 388 bushel/acre without irrigation last year. He farms very similar to Ontario farmers and will be sharing some of his secrets to success!
Along with sponsoring the event allowed us to also be apart of the 2-week yield tour where we can come and do yield checks in your corn and or soybean fields. If that is something you wish to be apart of let us know and we will come out conduct the yield checks. You will also be entered a draw to win various prizes.
Attached is a flyer going into more detail about the event, If you would like to attend let us know and we have can get you signed up.
Thank you again, we appreciate the continued support. If you have anymore questions please feel free to ask away.
