Better Farming pigeon expose
wins CAJ magazine award

An article about the business practices of a Waterloo-based pigeon breeding business has won an award for Better Farming magazine from the Canadian Association of Journalists. The award in the magazine category was presented on Saturday at the association's annual conference in Edmonton. It was for a December 2007 article by a staff team made up of managing editor Editor Robert Irwin, senior staff editor Don Stoneman and field editor Mary Baxter called “Faith in Arlan Galbraith: Ontario’s Pigeon King”.

“We’re thrilled by the honour and pleased to see the agriculture beat highlighted,” says Irwin. “I thought it was interesting that of the five entries in our category, four had to do with agriculture or the environment.”

Published 10 times a year, Better Farming is Ontario’s largest circulation farm business publication. It is operated by the privately owned AgMedia Inc based in Vankleek Hill, Ontario. It also publishes Better Pork magazine and operates the web site BetterFarming.com.
