SOUTH KEYES – The second day of the 92nd annual Ottawa Valley Farm Show saw a steady stream of visitors to explore the many agricultural and industry displays. While touring the EY Centre and over 350 exhibits, there were also a number of presentations to entertain throughout the day.

Wed., March 13 also welcomed seed, feed and forage show exhibitors to the awards presentation in Hall A in the afternoon. The Championship Seed, Feed and Forage show welcomes exhibitors who qualified in their local shows in the weeks leading up to the OVFS. Over 15 different awards were presented by the farm show committee members. The exhibits from the show will continue to be on display throughout Thurs., March 14 in the Court of Honour. In the same location on Thursday the Prestigious Pedigree Seed Auction will commence at noon with funds raised donated to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

Again this year the Kemptville College Alumni Association hosted an alumni reception. This was the first year that the group welcomed guests to Hall B. The larger venue was necessary this year with plenty of alumni and their families stopping by to see old classmates.

Wednesday wraps up with the Vintage Iron and Tradition of Eastern Ontario’s toy auction to benefit food baskets that will be donated over Easter.

The many attractions of the farm show and all that there is to see and do will continue into Thursday before wrapping up until next year.
