Event Description

The Ontario Forage Council, in conjunction with the Dufferin County Soil and Crop Improvement Associations, invite you to participate Forage Expo 2018! 

Dufferin County will host the western location on Thursday, July 5th at Mornahan Farms,  115039 Sideroad 27 & 28 in Grand Valley.

This year’s demonstrations will include equipment from the leaders in forage production equipment.  Attendees will not only have the chance to see what’s new for 2018 but will also have the unique opportunity to witness this equipment in head to head field trials!  Equipment will include various mowers, conditioners, rakes, tedders, windrow inverters, mergers, harvesters, dump wagons, large round balers, large square balers, small square bale bundlers, bale wrappers and bale grapplers. This event will provide the opportunity for farmers to view the latest technology available to harvest forage quickly with minimal loss and maximum quality.  Ian McDonald and Christine O’Reilly, OMAFRA will be in the field, working with the equipment companies to provide information to farmers and answer questions.  This is important in making decisions on investments which ultimately enhance their farm operations in capacity, minimizing harvest losses, product quality and profitability.

 

This event is FREE TO THE FARMING COMMUNITY!  Lunch will be available on-site, and no pre-registration is required.

Global leaders gather to take action on sustainable livestock production

Livestock are seen as both a source of greenhouse gas emissions and a solution to climate change. To help bring balance, dialogue and understanding to an often-contentious issue, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations last fall hosted the first-ever Global Conference on Sustainable Livestock Transformation. 

Feeding the Future

The agri-food industry is the most important in the world – we all need to eat. Research and innovation have enabled tremendous change in the livestock sector, and we can expect that change to increase in rate.
