Innovation Oxford Airs on RogersTV

August 03, 2011

Since arriving from Ireland in the 1860’s, generations have been on the land until today, the William Chesney farm cultivates 2,500 acres north of Innerkip, Ontario. Innovation is a key to improvements in production and operational efficiencies. Bill Chesney shows us how.

We go behind the scenes at McIntosh Embryo Transfer north-east of Embro, Ontario to see how Alex McIntosh employs the process of genetic improvement to dairy herds world-wide.
In Ingersoll there’s a company where every day is a winter deep freeze. We are given unprecedented access to this major food storage facility at Ontario Refrigerated Services.

The series airs at 5:30 p.m. in Woodstock/Ingersoll and at other times during the week and weekend (check schedule here:
