On May 8th, 25 Registered Dietitians attended our farm tour in the Saskatoon area sponsored by Dairy Farmers of Canada, Canadian Lentils and CropLife Canada.
Our group toured the state-of-the-art ILTA Grain facility west of Saskatoon for a look into the processing and shipping of Saskatchewan lentils around the world. They also got a pre-production view of pulse breeding technologies at the University of Saskatchewan Greenhouses and enjoyed a delicious lunch at Marquis Hall on campus. The last stop was an exciting afternoon at Elkrest Dairy Farms by Osler to watch the content cows on the carousel in the milking parlour and witness a feeding of the calves in their ultramodern calf barn.
The attendees had many educated questions for the tour hosts, sponsors and farmers that joined us throughout the day and were eager to take the answers back to their clients.
Thank you to our sponsors who made this day a success!
