Solvet Animal Health

Join us on social media:

About

Solvet is a Canadian company that specializes in meeting the veterinary pharmaceutical needs of producers. We’re a new kind of company with a new business model: We develop our products by listening to our customers and we produce them right here in Canada. We call it Innovation by Request. A key to delivering Innovation is our investment in research. According to Dr. Merle Olson, founder of Solvet, “When I started in this business as a veterinarian, big pharma companies were always bringing out new products. Times have changed but veterinarians haven’t. They still want to see the evidence. They still need to see relevant data. That’s why I went into research. We do our research and development in Canada, at Canadian research facilities. Then we also produce our products here in Canada”.  
 
According to Dr. Olson, one of Solvet’s advantages from a research perspective is the input it continually receives from the practitioners and producers that make up Canada’s animal health sector. “We don’t have researchers looking for solutions to problems no one has,” he notes. “We’re researching the challenges Canadian producers and their veterinarians face every day and we test our solutions in the conditions they experience. That’s how we developed Meloxicam Oral Suspension, a product that has revolutionized the humane treatment of livestock.”
The animal health industry will continue to evolve, and this evolution will require a constant pipeline.

Ontario Sheep Farmers (OSF)

Join us on social media:

About

For more than 30 years Ontario Sheep Farmers has been an advocate and unified voice for the Ontario’s 3,000 sheep farmers, representing the sheep, lamb and wool industries. The organization (and its predecessors) was established to promote and represent the industry’s interests and began with the formation of the Ontario Sheep Association in the 1970s. With increasing concerns about the marketing of lambs and market share relative to imports in the early to mid 1980s, a request was made to the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission to develop and implement a marketing plan for sheep in the province. The result was the implementation of the Ontario Sheep Marketing Agency (OSMA) in September of 1985. In the late 1980s, the Ontario Sheep Association and OSMA amalgamated, retaining Ontario Sheep Marketing Agency as the association’s name. In the fall of 2017, the organization evolved to become Ontario Sheep Farmers, enhancing its visibility and engagement with stakeholders in the sheep value chain in Ontario, and across Canada. Our Mission: To educate, innovate and strategically advocate on behalf of its membership, while maintaining a high professional standard of conduct and leadership Our Vision: Enable Ontario sheep producers to be the supplier of premium lamb and sheep products.

NFU-O farmers think things should be done a little differently. We work toward progressive agricultural policy that sustains family farmers. We also recognize that the definition of “family” may have changed over the years, but that’s fine with us–we’re all family at the NFU-O, because working together to get the job done is what family does. Together, we can produce healthy and safe food through environmentally sustainable farm practices, and we can shape rural communities people want to live in. Operating on local, provincial, national, and international levels, the National Farmers Union is invested in you and your farm. As a growing organization made up of farmers just like you, we stand up together for farm policy that supports farmers–you guessed it–just like you. While many organizations talk the talk, the NFU-O walks the walk. Like any good agricultural non-profit, we have a board of directors that oversee the direction and activities of our organization. Like any great agricultural non-profit, our board is comprised of famers from small and medium sized farms cultivating a diversity of commodities and farm products. They know what matters to our members all too well, because it’s what matters to them, too. Not only do we have a diversity of farm types represented, we also have a diversity of demographics within our board and our leadership positions. From the get go (did we mention we were founded in 1969?), women and young farmers have always had seats at our table, and their input has always been valued. Now more than ever, the need for a diversity in agricultural leadership is growing and we pride ourselves on being the Accredited Farm Organization in Ontario that truly represents who’s farming today and who will be farming tomorrow.

Our alumni also fondly recall the fun and lifelong friendships that began during their time as members. The real beauty of JFAO is that the skill development is disguised in so much fun! JFAO provides opportunities for young people of all backgrounds, but especially those in rural Ontario, to take on the challenge of exploring their individual talents and potential to develop personally while being involved in improving their communities, networking, and having fun. Members are guided by the motto “Building Communities. Building Leaders”, the mission “to build rural leaders through personal growth, travel, experiences, and community betterment,” and the vision “our vision is for rural youth to connect, build, and develop leaders for strong communities,” as they conduct positive social and educational activities which satisfy their personal needs and interests while directing service projects which meet the needs of their community. Programs and opportunities provided by JFAO and its affiliated clubs help members to develop a sense of social and environmental responsibility, the ability to provide effective leadership, and an awareness of good citizenship within the community and world around them. We welcome anyone between the ages of 15 and 29 as of January 1. Members tend to be rural youth, but contrary to our name many of us are not farmers, and by the time we finish the program, we’re not all that junior! Members come from all walks of life, occupations and backgrounds. Members participate in a variety of activities in their home communities and across the province with other members. We compete in sports and cultural events, fundraise for charities, take road trips to community centres around the corner or hours from home for dances, travel abroad and host international delegates, and generally have fun doing all kinds of activities from East to West.

Results from numerous documented trial studies (available) strongly support a large volume of incoming feedback today, where herdsmen, both large and small, express their appreciation for the product and its results, often achieving new levels of herd health, production, and profits. Nearly 100% of herdsmen notice significant improvements (especially when documented) in the overall health and production of their herds

Lystek International Corp.

Join us on social media:

About

Lystek's cornerstone product is the high-solids liquid fertilizer LysteGro®. LysteGro meets the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA) criteria for a registered fertilizer. Farmers value LysteGro because of the predictable NPK values, organic matter, soil incorporation and, most importantly, the fertilizer’s performance. Third-party studies have shown LysteGro can completely replace commercial fertilizers and result in superior crop yields. LysteGro is injected into the soil subsurface during application to maximize nutrient use efficiency and mitigate odor and run-off potential. The in-field aesthetics and cleanliness of the injection operation we employ are superior to surface application methods. Our technology and product management services are proven to maximize value for both the end-user and generator.
