Ontario Forage Expo 2016

May 17, 2016, Ontario – The Ontario Forage Council, in conjunction with the Grey and Dundas County Soil and Crop Improvement Associations, are hosting the Ontario Forage Expo 2016 - Forage Equipment Demonstrations and Trade Show. This years’ theme is: “Hay Making in Motion”.

Grey County will host the western location on Tuesday, July 5 at the farm of Carman & Beth-Ann Weppler and Family - 7504 Minto/Normanby Townline, Clifford. Dundas County will host the eastern location at the Vandenbroek Family Farm - 11250 County Rd 43 W, Winchester on Thursday, July 7.

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 2016, 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 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.
