Shownotes

On this week's episode of The Rural Woman Podcast™, you'll meet Kelly Worthington.

Kelly Worthington and her husband, Jon Lendvoy bought their farm in the Fall of 2010 just east of Carstairs. Kelly was an avid horse girl with always the desire for breeding and Jon an outdoorsman, hunter and fisherman. Not long into renovations, they decided they wanted to do some grass steers. Like most people, they went to the auction and bought some 600lb steers. They learned quickly that they didn’t know their background, health and parentage. After doing research and wanting to provide their co-workers, family and friends with a healthier beef choice, they found Galloway cattle. Galloways perform outstandingly on grass and with their ability to internally marble, grain was not required.

As their beef program grew, their customers always asked if they did pork. It was never an option as they did not enjoy the mess they always heard pigs made, the rooting, hard to contain in a fenced area and the aggressiveness the adults potentially could have.

In 2015, they found out about a new breed of swine that had arrived in Canada, Kunekune Pigs. They were well known for their gentle demeanour, easy to contain, and the best no rooting. Kelly and Jon knew instantly this pig breed would work with their grass-fed beef.

AGI Storm FX

Take the guesswork out of seed treating. Building on the success of previous models, the key functions of the AGI STORM FX have been refined through consultation with our current users. The AGI STORM FX has been engineered for accuracy, flexibility and mobility, gentle seed handling and easy clean-out, all while reducing user exposure. Unlike other seed treaters, the AGI STORM FX accurately measures untreated seed directly from the bin, precisely meters and applies the seed treatment, gently mixes the seed for consistent, even coverage and then transfers the treated seed into the truck, ready to plant. The simplified process provided by the AGI STORM FX reduces user exposure, making in-the-yard seed treating safe, simple and convenient, while giving you total control over the seed treating process.
