Registration is open for the Canadian Forage and Grassland Association (CFGA)’s 14th annual conference taking place in beautiful Harrison Hot Springs, B.C. Nov. 28 through Dec. 1.
With the theme Forage Resilience in a Changing Landscape – Manage risk. Overcome Challenges. Discover opportunities, this year’s event will celebrate the important environmental and economic role forages and grasslands play across the country while delivering the practical, grassroots-based agronomic knowledge the CFGA is known for.

Other speakers include:
- Dan Undersander from the University of Wisconsin speaking about sustainability metrics for forage systems
