Guelph, ON, April 9, 2010 – Farmers must stand together and start leading the discussion on sustainable food and farming. That’s the message Montana logger and environmental advocate Bruce Vincent told a record audience at the Speakers’ Forum hosted by AGCare and the Ontario Farm Animal Council (OFAC) in Guelph yesterday.

The public is tired of doom and gloom, says Vincent, and they need to hear more from farmers actively promoting their proactive environmental practices in order to bring balance to the ongoing debate about environmental stewardship.
