Press Release


Grey Bruce Farmers’ Week (#GBFW20), in its 54th year, will run from Friday, Jan 3rd to Thursday, January 9th   This 7-day Agricultural Conference packed with a most impressive and informative line-up of speakers!   The coordinators for this event, Grey County Ag Services, in conjunction with agricultural commodity leaders from Grey and Bruce Counties, have attempted to feature at least one high profile speaker for each day, targeting the issues and challenges facing the farming community today.

The Committee is delighted to announce that this year, all days of #GBFW20 will be Live Streamed.  If producers live further afield, they can still participate in this amazing conference! Of course, the best way to experience GBFW is in person, so that attendees can chat with the speakers during breaks, visit the tradeshow booths, and network with fellow producers over a delicious hot roast beef dinner.   If that is just not possible, this new online viewing option will allow producers from far and wide to learn from our spectacular speakers. Of note, for your viewing convenience, live stream ticket holders will be able to access the live feeds for one month following the event.

For more details on the speakers planned for each day, please refer to the brand-new Grey Bruce Farmers’ Week website  If you need detailed information about any of the presentations, or complete bios, that information is also available on the website.

The GBFW planning committee would like to thank all of the generous sponsors!!  The full list is on our brochure, or on our website (
