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.
