The Canadian forage industry has traditionally been represented by Provincial Councils and, as a result, tended to be regionalized with activities limited to the jurisdiction of the Councils. The CFGA was formed to address this and provide a coordinated approach for the industry as a whole. As an association, the board will direct projects toward innovation, marketing and sales and thereby raise the profile of the industry and the bottom line of our producers and end users. With the development of CFGA, market barriers can now be addressed on a national basis. The current issue for many Canadian forage exporters is that there are several barriers that restrict market access in a competitive way. Transportation costs, currency rates, protocols, energy costs and market demands are some of the key barriers that Canadian need to overcome to effectively market into these regions.
