The 2018 Central Ontario Agricultural Conference will run March 1st and 2nd, at Georgian College. However, due to the strike back in the Fall classes will be running at the same time as this year’s conference. Georgian will be accommodating COAC in alternative space and will be setting up registration and the exhibitor space in Building C, The Administrative Centre, outside the Gryphon Theatre.
The planning committee has put together another great line up of speakers and exhibitors. With the first day, March 1st, featuring the Dairy, Sheep, Organics and Backyard Farming programs, and March 2nd Crops and Equine. “Finalizing this year’s program was delayed by Georgian College as a result of the Fall faculty strike”, said COAC President Paul Maurice. “Our committee was ready to go to print in November but over the last few months we’ve had to re-negotiate the venue to hold our annual conference due to the strike and the College not having a winter reading week as planned,” added Maurice. Despite these adjustments, the COAC volunteer planning committee has developed an outstanding program you will not want to miss….
