The Ontario Forage Council is proud to announce our upcoming annual Profitable Pastures 2017, this years’ theme is:  Grazing Management, Proven Success! Can It Work on My Farm?   The conference will be held in Mount Forest, at the Mount Forest Community Centre, on Tuesday, February 28th.  Additionally, remote locations will be added.  Please watch our website for news on these remote locations.  Presentations are CEU accredited.

This years’ keynote speaker is Dr. Jason Rowntree, an Associate Professor in Animal Science at Michigan State University.  Dr. Rowntree will give two presentations; Upper Midwest Grass Finishing, and Grazing Management to Increase Production and Lower Cost.

In addition to our keynote speaker, a rep from BFO will kick off the day with a Northern Cow Herd Expansion Update.  Doug Yungblut will discuss his latest area of study: The profitability of grazing beef cows versus cash cropping in southern Ontario.   Attendees will also be treated to the firsthand knowledge from sheep producer Vince Stutzski, as well as Mapleseed’s 2017 Beef Pasture Award Winner (TBA).  These producers will share information about their operations, as well as participate in the producer panel.
