Agricultural Tour

Red Deer County proudly hosts an Ag Tour each year, with a chartered bus tour around the County to view local farming operations. The Tour is a unique opportunity to learn about agriculture in our community, and to speak to farmers directly. 

For the 2019 Ag Tour, attendees visited four local operations:


This colony features crops on 7000 acres, 500 sows, 100 dairy cows with robotic milking, cow/calf operation with 350 cows, as well as chickens and eggs raised for their own use. You can find their garden produce at Olds and Pine Lake farmer's markets.

Exciting talks on our beef industry were presented by Peter Lawrence, Doug Sawyer as well as Kelly Scott-Fraser.
