Ontario AgCast

Ontario AgCast – Jonathan Lamb

Jonathan Lamb is a partner in Lamb Farms and Oakfield Corners Dairy. We talk cows, genomics and employees. This is a great example where “big” and “family” go together in more ways than one. Jonathan will be in Ontario speaking at the Wallenstein Feed and Supply Dairy Producer Meeting on January 31.

Ontario AgCast – Jes Oelschlagal

For all our talk about letting consumers see how their food is produced, there’s one part of the process that has remained hidden from public view. A third generation butcher, Jes Oelschlagal wants to change that and help educate people on why the job of ending an animals life is noble and important. I think it’s safe to say we don’t pull ant punches with this one.  Check out the True Transparency Project for more info.
