July 29, 2014, Ontario – Approximately 350 drainage contractors from across Ontario gathered in Middlesex Centre at the farm of Steve Pym on July 22 for the Land Improvement Contractors of Ontario’s summer field day.

With perfect weather, the day went off without a hitch, beginning bright and early with four contractors – Roth Drainage (Bron), AWF Contractors (Wolfe Heavy Equipment), Dave Stevens Drainage (Link Manufacturing) and Tait Brothers Contracting (Tait Manufacturing) – installing pipe at 30- to 35-foot spacings over 80 acres. The field was split into four and the design featured a 9.5-foot deep main as an outlet designed in the early 1980s, which was installed too high to properly drain its watershed.

Several exhibitors demonstrated equipment, including ground-penetrating radar for locating existing tile, tile trench closers, a compost turner and static plows. Huron Tractor (John Deere) and Delta Power Equipment (Case IH) participated in a tillage demonstration as well, showing off the latest in tillage equipment.
