The beef information day in this region had a youthful twist. The day included information for young people on management options, key issues and good practices for sustainable farming. A group of youth volunteers planned the day, including a "Farmer Olympics" that was a terrific hit. The most important results were that young people made industry connections that they would not have otherwise. They also realized that there are many more opportunities for careers and a future in Ontario's beef industry.
