Plowing match comes to SDG
As the summer draws to a close, SDG will host one of the biggest rural celebrations in Canada. The International Plowing Match, or IPM, is a weeklong event that showcases agriculture and should bring more than 80,000 people into the nearby community of Finch.
Originally founded in 1913 the main focus of the event has always been the actual plow competition itself. Contestants utilize horses, mules and tractors to plow fields! Judging focuses on a variety of elements, ranging from uniformity to straightness of the furrows.
