Competition

The goals of the Canadian Plowing Association include preserving the art and skill of match plowing in Canada by advancing and teaching the skills involved, promoting the safe and efficient use of farm machinery, and encouraging improved farm productivity and yield efficiency through proper seedbed preparation and soil management.

Canadian Plowing Championships

Competitors from across Canada plow in their respective provinces for the right to compete in the Canadian Plowing Championships. They are assigned to one of three classes based on the type of plow they are using: Senior Competitors Conventional Class Senior Competitors Reversible Class Junior Competitors Conventional Class Competitors each plow one “land” per day for three days in sod and stubble conditions. In addition to the plowing, a number of social events - open to the public, will be held to encourage fellowship among the residents of the City of Ottawa and visitors from across Canada. These events typically include “plot draw” wine and cheese, BBQ, Auction Night, and the final award banquet. Tourist, trade and community venues as well as media and the plowing fraternity were used to promote the event within Ontario and across the country. This event will showcase the Ottawa area – our Nation’s Capital – as well as augment and extend interest in this historic, social, and international agricultural sport.
