Event Description

The Ontario Forage Council is proud to announce our upcoming annual Forage Focus Conference 2012.  This years’ theme is:  “Managing Profitable Forages Now and for the Future”.  The conference will be held in Winchester on Tuesday, November 27th at the Winchester Community Centre, and in Shakespeare on Wednesday, November 28th at the Shakespeare Optimist Hall.  Presentations are CEU accredited.

This years’ keynote speaker is Dr. Michael Hutjens from the University of Illinois.  Dr Hutjens will be speaking on two topics, ”The Role of Forages for a Profitable Operation”, and “Lessons Learned from a Challenging Season”.  Dr. Hutjens has won awards from the Illinois Milk Producers, Holstein Association and the University, but he is also very active in all forms of media.  You can watch him on YouTube, iTunes, Webinar, catch his blog on Dairyline.com, read his articles in Hoard’s Dairyman, and on Googlebooks, and even watch his presentations online.  The Ontario Forage Council welcomes Dr. Hutjens to Ontario, an enthusiastic speaker with information that you can put to use immediately.

Joel Bagg, Forage Specialist, OMAFRA will speak on “Coping with the Forage Challenges of 2012”.  There will also be a representative from Agricorp present to explain the benefits of “Crop Production Insurance, Now and in the Future”.
