Event Description

Our premier hay, straw and forage products, exceptional producers, and our abundant forage and grassland resources power Canada's beef and dairy sector. However, reduced focus on forage research and development, coupled with increasing returns for annual crops and the resulting decrease in forage acreage has negatively impacted the industry. Transportation costs and logistical issues also have influenced the ability of some provinces to export. Despite this, our dairy sector continues to need high quality hay, straw and forage products and our rapidly expanding beef industry has similar requirements. As well, our Canadian exporters have managed to successfully negotiate protocols with key importing nations such as the US, UK and the Middle East and have consequently increased the potential for forage exports to new markets.

Opportunities abound for commercial entrepreneurs and innovative companies positioned to take advantage of existing and new markets within this expanding and dynamic sector of the Canadian economy. Attend our annual conference November 18-19, with an optional tour on November 17, in the beautiful Eastern Townships of Québec, to help us continue to forge a path forward for our strategic forage and grassland industry.

Cattle Handling

Cattle handling is a skill that takes time to hone. The goal of handling cattle is to minimize the stress on the animal. Prolonged stress can make an animal prone to illness. Handlers have a unique appreciation for cattle; they understand the behaviour of animals, allowing them to intuitively predict animal behaviour and move them in a way that leverages the natural instincts (flight zones) of cattle, thus reducing the stress on the cattle.

Government of Canada invests nearly $2 million in migratory bird monitoring and conservation programs

Migratory birds are an important part of Canadian biodiversity. Despite their great adaptability, science shows that migratory bird populations are declining, and this has negative impacts on ecosystem health. The Government of Canada is committed to halting this loss of biodiversity by strengthening protective measures for migratory birds and supporting work with many partners, including other governments, Indigenous peoples, and non-profit organizations.
