    Wonder why it's been so grey and rainy lately in Manitoba? It's because a large upper-level low has stalled out over northern Ontario, bringing frequent chances for rain to southern Manitoba. The satellite image we drew up (below) shows the centre of the low marked with a "L" and a bunch of upper-level disturbances marked with "X"s. Each time one of those disturbances moves through it brings more rain. With all those disturbances rotating around the low, the system looks like a huge ball-bearing!

    I work as a supervisor in the greenhouse. I am from Thailand, and I have been here for 8-9 years now. What brought me to Canada was the English and the opportunity to make more money. I wanted to improve my English at that time and learn new things in another country.
    I am interested in many things and try and learn new things. What makes me happy is working in media. I like filming, photography, and those kinds of things. These are things I enjoy.
    At Truly Green we have many people from around the world. Many of the Thai workers do not speak English here. I have become a translator for them which is exciting, and I can improve my English more and more.

    "What we love to do the most is introduce new people to alpacas and alpaca fibre. We're not just in the business of raising alpacas -- we raise alpaca farmers. And over the last 13 years, we've helped 30 new alpaca farms get started across 3 provinces.
    I wasn't raised on a farm -- but when we bought this country property, we started trying to think about what we could use the land for. We bought our starter herd in 2009 and have never looked back. It's a lovely industry to be in. These animals are gentle, friendly, require little land, are sustainable and are very healthy. I often tell people that they're easier to care for than a dog. We've now got 21 alpacas living here, broker dozens of alpacas each year, and are expecting several new cria (baby alpacas) next spring.
    I'm also a knitter. Working with a luxurious fibre like alpaca is addictive to fibre artists like me. It's an elite product. Sheep's wool is sold by the pound, but alpacs fibre is sold by the ounce. We wholesale all of our fibre and that side of our business is growing too. The herd is shorn once a year in the spring.
    When someone is interested in raising alpacas, we mentor them through the whole process. We teach them how to feed and care for them, how to give them vaccinations and how to shear them. We've even dropped everything to go and be part of the birthing process when client's alpacas deliver their first cria. Their success is our success. It's rewarding to help build this growing industry. There are now about 80 alpaca farmers in Ontario and it's growing all the time.

    FACES BEHIND FOOD - REPOST
    We've been raising bison on our Ontario farm for 30 years. My wife Shirley and I were both raised on dairy farms and were looking for something different to raise when we got married. There are about 30 bison farmers who are part of the Ontario Bison Association. We now have about 100 animals in the herd including a number of calves born this spring.
    Bison are an easy animal to look after. There's not a lot of work involved. They're really healthy and rarely need a vet. When it comes time to give birth, the cow has her calf and there it goes -- no help needed! You've got to respect bison; they never lose their wild instinct. The less they are handled, the better. An exception to that is Lucy. She was born blind and has become a bit of a pet on this farm. She loves having her head scratched.
    There are two types of bison -- Wood and Plains. These are Plains.
    Because it's a small industry in Ontario, farmers have to do their own marketing and promotion. We have been selling our bison meat at the London Covent Garden Farmers Market for over 20 years. And to a couple of local restaurants. It's a great meat -- its low in fat, lower in cholesterol, high in protein, and iron. The ground meat is awesome in so many recipes.

    Doesn't this look AMAZING! I want to go. Some of my favourite childhood memories are of cattle driving my uncles cows from east of Fassifern to west of Lochiel in small town Ontario Canada.
