The Kootenay Local Agricultural Society will be presenting “Make Hay When the Sun Shines,” a free field day with the BCS 853 walking tractor and eco-farmer Cal Lorencz.

Learn how to use a cutter, tedder and baler to make hay just about anywhere with the beefy BCS walking tractor.

Other BCS attachments—rotary plow, tiller, flail mower, and more—will be on display, ready to play, and available to rent from the Kootenay Local Agricultural Society.

The field day will be on Saturday, July 20, from 9 a.m. to noon at Cal and Stephanie Lorencz’s farm at 2707 Shoreacres Rd. north of Castlegar and south of the Slocan junction.

Cal has offered to help with the tools into the afternoon if participants want extra time.

To sign up for the event, phone 250-521-2500 or email klasociety@shaw.ca. Bring boots, lunch, and good ol’ haymaking spirit.
