Event Description

The Ontario Forage Council will soon host the annual Forage Focus 2015 Conference series on Tuesday, December 15th in Shakespeare, and on Wednesday, December 16th in Winchester. The conference will highlight the importance of forages in improving profitability and efficiency, which given today’s competitive economic agricultural climate takes on more importance than ever.

The keynote speaker at Forage Focus 2015 will be Rick Grant, President of the William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute. Rick Grant was raised on a dairy farm in northern New York State. He earned a B.S. in Animal Science from Cornell University, a Ph.D. from Purdue University in ruminant nutrition, and a Post-Doc in forage research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

From 1990 to 2003, Rick was a professor and extension dairy specialist in the   Department of Animal Science at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. Since February of 2003, he has been President of the William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute in Chazy, NY, a privately funded educational and research institute focused on dairy cattle, equine, and crop management. Research interests focus on forages, dairy cattle nutrition, and cow behavior. Rick received the Pioneer Hi-Bred Forage Award and Applied Dairy Nutrition Award from ADSA.
