Event Description

The Ontario Forage Council, in conjunction with the Ottawa/Carleton County Soil and Crop Improvement Association, are proud to announce Ontario Forage Expo 2017 - Forage Equipment Demonstrations and Trade Show.  The theme is: “Hay Making in Motion”.    

Ottawa/Carleton County will host the eastern location at Hillisle Farm, owned and operated by Bruce, Cheryl and Spencer Hill - 4325 - 4513 McKenna Casey Dr., Nepean, on July 6th, 2017.  A special thank you to our lead contacts in each county; Evert Veldhuizen in Oxford, and Spencer Hill in Ottawa/Carleton.

 

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 2017, 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, 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. 

 

Trade show, demonstration and sponsorship opportunities are still available for this event.  Spaces are limited and will fill quickly, so don’t hesitate.  Ontario Forage Expo is an excellent opportunity to advertise to a forage focused audience compiled of producers from counties across the province!

As one of the We CareSM Principles, maintaining the highest standards for animal care is a top priority on my pig farm for many reasons. It’s paramount to our success as pig farmers on multiple levels.
