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 opportunity to witness this equipment in action head to head. 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.
