A Champion in Our Midst


I am not sure you are aware of a local, regional, provincial, national champion living in our communities, who will soon be participating in the world championship.

Brian Davenport, of R.R. 6 Owen Sound, Story Book Park Road, Meaford, Grey-Bruce RBC Financial Planner and Consultant, returned to his farm this past spring as Canadian Plowing Champion, won in western Canada this past spring.

He leaves in three weeks with his tractor and plow for Ireland, to represent Canada at the World Plowing Championship in Ireland. He will be joined by his wife, Susan, and, I presume, members of his family, a week later, to support him in his quest to become World Plowing Champion.

Bruce has represented Owen Sound/Meaford, Grey-Bruce, Ontario, and Canada in international plowing competitions in the United States, Mexico, South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa in past years.

Bruce operates a successful farm on Story Book Park Road in the Municipality of Meaford.
