bfoUP Young Producer Webinar

See a future in the beef industry? Between the ages of 18-40?

BFO will be hosting a set of webinars throughout the winter and spring for young Ontario producers and industry members!

These will be an opportunity to learn and network with young industry enthusiasts, to gain the knowledge to develop and expand operations, get involved with the beef community and further the expansion and progress of the Ontario beef industry. The webinars will feature a variety of topics from being an effective agvocate to succession planning among many others that you can apply on-farm, as well as to general industry.

Take part in the second of our bfoUP Webinar Series on February 12th at 8pm!

Featuring Ryan & Allison Nesbitt of Cedardale Farms. Ryan and Allison along with their daughters Anna (7) and Paige (4) are partners in Cedardale Farms Ltd. with Ryan's brother and parents in Nestleton Ontario. Located one hour north east of Toronto on the land that has been farmed by Ryan's family for over 150 years, their farm consists of 160 purebred Charolais breeding age females and 1500 acres of cash crop land.  The Nesbitt family hosts The Cedardale Charolais bull sale on their farm every April where they strive to produce bulls that are demanded by the Ontario cow-calf producer.  Ryan and Allison also maintain a small purebred Angus herd under A.D.A Cattle company that was started by Allison during her time in 4-H while living in the Ottawa Valley.

Both graduates of the Ontario Agricultural college at the University of Guelph with degrees in Agriculture Business in 2007, Ryan began farming full time and Allison pursued a career in Agriculture Finance where she currently works a Manager, Customer Service for Farm Credit Canada.

The agricultural sector and especially the beef industry has been an influential part of both Ryan and Allison’s upbringing. They are continuing to find their “path” in the industry as producers and raising a family.

A few accomplished Cedardale Farms have been honoured to receive are the Durham Region Farm Family of the year in 2015, the Ontario Pasture Management Award in 2013 for their rotational grazing initiatives and the longest standing Ontario Charolais Bull Sale.
