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.
