The pressure to build more housing in urban areas is strong, but such development takes some of Canada's best farmland out of production permanently. Should decisions on how this land is used be left solely to the market? Students will debate the issue.

  • Articles and reports: 96-325-X20010006959
    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:

    This paper examines Canada's beef exports and imports throughout the early days of the beef export ban that came into effect on May 20, 2003. The Canadian beef export market was worth about $4.1 billion in 2002. These exports dropped to virtually zero in June, July and August after the implementation of a worldwide ban on Canadian beef products following the discovery of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) - more commonly known as mad cow disease - in a single cow. Canadian beef imports increased above historical levels in June before dropping in July and August. Canadian beef imports have not been trivial: they accounted for about $900 million in 2002 or almost 30% of the beef and veal consumed in Canada.

    Description:

    Over the last few years, the rapid expansion of large livestock operations has fuelled heated debates in many rural communities across Canada. Proposals for new hog operations, among others, have encountered vocal opposition from neighbours and residents in the community. Promoters defended the economic value of their project claiming that good farming practices and improved technology minimizes the potential risk of nuisance and pollution. However, opponents raised concerns about the reduction of their quality of life in association with large livestock operations, especially hog farms. They fear being driven out of their homes by strong odours or worry about accidental contamination of ground water in surrounding areas, as in Walkerton, Ontario. Still others are upset by prospects of added truck traffic, dust and noise resulting from feed and livestock transportation.
