New Year, Old Friends

 

Have you ever made a New Year’s resolution of “reconnecting with old friends”? As of December 2017, Lac Ste. Anne County did just that when the Agriculture Services Board (ASB) decided to renew our partnership with West-Central Forage Association (WCFA). This was a natural course of events, as nearly a quarter of WCFA members reside in Lac Ste. Anne County, and both organizations were in constant contact already!

 

 

West-Central Forage Association is a grant-funded organization that focusses on extending education to producers, and offers applied research on a variety of topics, from industrial hemp to regional variety silage trials. They have contacts with great speakers, other research organizations (including the University of Alberta), and professionals across the industry. An example of one of many exciting programs offered through WCFA is importing Canada thistle biological control agents.

We encourage producers who are not already involved to see what WCFA has to offer! The knowledge that both organizations can provide is invaluable, and tailored to the wants and needs of members and residents. Both West-Central Forage Association and the Lac Ste. Anne County ASB welcome input – WCFA has released a producer survey available on their website (www.WestCentralForage.ca) or in person at the LSAC office, or WCFA office in Entwistle. The survey only takes a few minutes to fill out, but provides us with a bounty of information to use in all future events.

Lac Ste. Anne County is excited to be engaged with WCFA again, and we look forward to many great events, locally sourced research with applicable results, and the wealth of knowledge that WCFA can offer. Keep your eyes and ears open for all sorts of upcoming events!
