The Canadian Advantage

Canada offers its forage export markets pure timothy and alfalfa products as well as the highest quality mixed hay and straw products.

 Clean

No matter where in Canada the hay and forage products are sourced, its cold winters contribute to the ability to deliver a safe and pure product.

 Sustainable 

Leading-edge farmland management is one key to success. Canadian growers use top management techniques to produce their forages, taking advantage of Canada’s land and water supplies.

 Consistent Supply of Forages 

Canadian farmers are reliable suppliers of forages year after year, using irrigation and other methods to grow their forages. Canada’s world-class rail and seaport infrastructure offers exporters easy access for containers and other forms of freight to supply their international customers.
