We are spending some time with my old mate Crosby here in Guelf Ontario and today we drove to London (no not London England)to have a look at the farm show. It is amazing how far the Nuffield network reaches I was talking to guy in a trade display looking at technologies for sensing soil chemical properties and as we talked we both realised we both new Nuffield scholar Craig McKenzie from NZ. There was a lot of machinery on display some different tillage equipment to what I have seen and some pick ups that caught my wife's eye as well. It has been very interesting understanding different farming practices and the extremes that are the seasons here , farmers here are limited by the winter and very much have to be on the ball, whereas at home we have only two seasons wet and dry !!
