    Description:

    Milking time is no longer as simple as approaching a cow with a bucket and three-legged stool - it hasn't been so for a long time. Dairy farming has become a complex process requiring skills in business, herd management and dairy nutrition to name a few. All of this is often accomplished with only one or two people managing the farm. Technology is what helps one or two people manage dozens or hundreds of highly productive dairy cattle. It is used in all aspects of milk production, from computer-generated algorithms for designing feeding programs to laboratory testing for determining the digestibility of feed ingredients, to computer chips and databases that track milk production.

    Description:

    In general, organic food in supermarkets tends to cost more compared with the same food grown in a non-organic fashion. Consumers may believe, as a result, that producers of organic food must be receiving more for their product than do their non-organic farming counterparts.

    Thus, the question begs to be asked: Are organic farmers able to charge more for their produce than non-organic producers? In other words, do organic producers receive a price premium? This is difficult to answer, as there is limited information on prices that farmers receive directly for their produce.

    Description:

    In 2001, the total value of certain farm investments for environmental protection was $170.9 million, an average of $1,091 per farm. These investments accounted for a very small proportion of total investments by Canadian farmers.

    In some cases, there are substantial differences in environmental protection investments between provinces and between farm types. Farms in Quebec, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia spend more on environmental protection, as do hog, dairy and poultry farms.

    The data in this article are from the Farm Financial Survey (FFS). The data were collected by telephone interview from a sample of 18,000 farms with a gross farm income of $10,000 or more. The purpose of the survey is to collect financial data, chiefly on assets, debt, revenues, expenses and investments.

    In 2002, for the first time, the survey collected data on the amount of money invested in 2001 in certain environmental protection improvements: manure storage systems; pesticide, chemical or fuel storage systems; and shelterbelts, windbreaks, buffer strips or fences for waterway protection.

    Description:

    Most Canadians would probably be surprised to learn that floriculture receipts are closing in on wheat, finishing in 2002 only 20% below the $2.3 billion earned from wheat. This note documents the shift in farming towards floriculture and nursery products in recent years, including which provinces have driven their growth and why farmers find these crops more appealing.
