Far too common in eastern Ontario. I don't really know what happened there, but it seems that farming took a dump 20-30 years ago. Only a few guys stayed in it, but the cash cropping seems to be recovering. Looked at alot of farms out there, different model of farming out there it seems. Your barns(that you've shown previously) are some really nice barns, and from what I've seen of Eastern Ontario(quite a bit for a guy from SW Ontario) they're out of place. Looks like they belong in sw Ontario. Do you stick to the dairy or do you have any beef or veal? Where do people in the east bring their cattle? Seems to be alot of eastern cattle in Keady, Cookstown, and Brussels, but are there any sizable stock yards in the east?

Well farmer boy,I guess I should post a few pic's of well cared for barns in the area next time. Beef farmers started to quit in the time of BSE and cash croping filled the void. Same everywere, I guess. I only do dairy, we have 62 tie stall , and are starting next Monday to put in another 11 stalls. The Kawartha Comunity Coop is the name of our nearest sale barn, 2mile from my farm . Sale runs every Saturday. Cull cows stockers, calves, sheep, goats,and the odd pig. Lot of turbin heads from Toronto, come to buy sheep,lambs and goats.They run special bred cow or stocker sales thruogh out the year, as well as machien consinment sales. So we are lucky, folks will come from60=70 miles away to sell/ buy stock. Cookstown is another option for us, but almost two hour drive away,same buyers, diffrent day, what is to gain? Bruce

You're not as far east as I thought. I was thinking more like Peterborugh to Perth. You're closer to Port Perry if you're only 2 hours from Cookstown. I've seen cattle from Quebec in Keady, I can't really figure out how it's worth shipping them here. Guys tend to be careful around eastern cattle, so any premium that Keady or Brussels brings on western cattle usually doesn't apply to eastern cattle. I still have trouble understanding cattle farming in the east. Must be a REALLY tough business.

I live in North Eastern Ontario near Earlton where the plowing match was about 4 years ago. There is a sales barn in New Liskeard 15 miles away, but when I had cattle it almost always paid to send them to Brussels, Cookstown, or even Kitchener. In New Liskeard there are only 2 big buyers. They both buy a pot load of cattle and haul them to Cookstown or Brussels and resell them, and make a living at it. Trucking to Cookstown was only double trucking to Liskeard, and the commision was cheaper in Cookstown as well. Now I have sheep, and the price in Cookstown or Brussels is double what I would get locally. I wouldn't sell a dead sheep here. This is a different world that southern eastern Ontario, but it likely has similar circumstances.

Farmer boy, we lived,and farmed on Scugog Island till 2004, and I went to High school in Port Perry.Our farm was the last to produce milk on Scugog Island, in 1981 when I started there were 8 milk shippers.Port Perry is just too close to Toronto. Bruce
