Taking Forages Mainstream -
The Challenges, Pitfalls & Opportunities
December 9th - Optional Tour
December 10th & 11th, Conference & AGM
Pomeroy Inn & Suites at Olds College, Olds, Alberta
It may be snowy and cold in Alberta come December, but we've got some hot topics being addressed at the Pomeroy Inn & Suites at Olds College in Olds, Alberta!
Our Conference theme this year is “Taking Forages Mainstream – Challenges, Pitfalls and Opportunities”. We are pleased to be working with the Alberta Forage Industry Network as hosts and in addition with Olds College. The College is celebrating its 100th Anniversary and our event will include the use of the brand new POMEROY Inn & Suites at Olds College.
Our tour will appeal to all aspects of the forage and grassland sector and our tour will showcase Alberta’s Densified Hay Processors, a hay drier, innovative winter grazing techniques, grazing native rangeland, and more. Forage and grassland research, the role of forages in rotations, forages and the environment and the public perception of the value of forages are just a few of the topics that will be included in the Conference program. Concurrent forage export marketing sessions will be of interest to those in the forage export business.
Here's a sampling of some of our speakers:
Forage & Grassland Research Workshop
On Tuesday afternoon leading forage and grassland researchers from across Canada will be discussing their current research projects and potential implications of this research for the future of the Canadian forage industry.
Following up on the Researcher presentations, on Wednesday morning two panels will discuss how to achieve the goal embedded in our Conference theme.
Panel 1 will address the question:
How can Research and Government help “Move Forages Mainstream?
In other words: What does industry think government and research could do to help us get forage recognized as a major crop.
Panel 2 will address two questions:
1. What are the “Challenges & Pitfalls” that Research and Government will face in helping us achieve our goal to “Move Forages Mainstream?
2. What “Opportunities” do they think may exist in the future where Industry, Government and Research could work together more closely to achieve this goal?
(Panelists will include: a leading edge Producer, a Hay Marketer, a Canadian Cattlemen’s Association rep, a highly recognized Forage Researcher, an Extension representative, a Research administrator and representatives from senior levels of Government)
