Thought for the Week

"Success is piece of mind which is a direct result of knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of being." – John Wooden



Attention CEEDA Members!
Ontario’s Anti-Spam Regulation comes into effect July 1, 2014.

In an effort to reduce electronic spam arriving in consumers’ inboxes, Canadian policy makers have established Bill C-28, Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL). While at first glance, this seems like a positive move for consumers, it is important to recognize the impact CASL will have on local Canadian businesses. In addition, these Canadian businesses will face extreme fines, upwards of $1 million, if their electronic marketing initiatives do not comply.

You must have current written permissions from every individual with whom you communicate electronically, on file. Different compliances exist for existing business relationships than for new business relationships moving forward. Please contact the CEEDA office for more detail.

Bill C-28 sets a very strict threshold for what messages can be sent and the penalties for non-compliance are extreme. Corporations could be fined as much as $10 million if they violate the law.

To access the Canada Anti-Spam Checklist please CLICK HERE

To avoiding having your hands tied by CASL and ensure you’re able to compete by utilizing email messaging, we’ve prepared a readiness checklist for you. Please see article and for more information, call Bev at the CEEDA office at 705-726-2100.

While Tier 4 compliance might have prompted equipment companies to change their 2014 lineups, many are using the opportunity to improve their offerings. The new Fendt 936 pushes out up to 360 h.p. at the drawbar and 300 at the power take-off.

Manage mud with the Roto Mud Scraper
Real Agriculture
For anyone who has ever had to seed in wet or very wet conditions, mud is a four letter word. For those in heavy, sticky clays, mud is also synonymous with a poor planting job, often gumming up the equipment and messing up the seed bed. While there's no point in pushing hard when it's very wet, sometimes even just a wee bit of mud on the packer wheels can really mess up the depth consistency on a seeding job.
