      A perspective on forage production in Canada. Gareau L. Over the past decade, the cattle industry has experienced practically a full circle. With the promising beef prices in the early s, with the glut of grain and a generous assist from government incentive programs, the forage acreage and cattle population have increased at a record by: 1. Summer crops can be grown for various reasons including replacing a ‘missed’ cereal crop, control herbicide resistant weeds, filling a summer feed gap for livestock or for watertable control. A summer crop can dry out the soil profile through summer and autumn to delay or avoid waterlogging in the following winter grain crop.

        Foraging for an outstanding Ontario producer. Ontario producers who grow forages in their pastures or harvest these crops for hay or ensilage may want to take the opportunity to showcase their operations. The Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association (OSCIA) encourages all forage growers – including those who are not. The Saskatchewan Forage Council was formed as a cooperative in to enhance the province's forage industry; including production, harvesting, utilization, and marketing. We distribute current information on forage-related topics and encourage the use of forages in production systems. We communicate and work with government on industry production issues and marketing policies.

WE KNOW FORAGES. Forage is the foundation of BrettYoung. It was our primary business for many decades and is still at the core of who we are today.

We access forage seed genetics from industry-leading Breeders across Canada, the United States and from around the world. Canada's forage resources include rangelands with wild plants that can be eaten by animals left to roam. The 4 western provinces have 96% of the 25 million ha of Canadian rangeland used for livestock production, 82% of the nation's cultivated pasture, 64% of the forage crop area, and 84% of the almost 5 million beef cows (Canada has about Title.

Forage & Grasslands. The health and profitability of the cow-calf sector depend on forage and grassland productivity. Research is focused on the development of strategies that will improve grassland management to increase productivity and sustainability.

Action must be taken to control weeds when required. Forage crops left in production for several years provide a favourable environment for perennial weeds to flourish. Perennial weeds such as Canada thistle and quackgrass can out-compete forage stands and are best controlled prior to planting.

Forage and fodder crops include forage sorghum, pennisetum, millet, lablab, cowpeas, soybeans, grain sorghum and maize. Choice will depend on sowing time and feed quantity and quality requirements.

Other factors such as soil type, drainage, weeds and disease may also need to be considered. The agronomy and management used can have a greater. on summer cattle range on Black Mesa in western Colorado. Forbs that were abundant, high in nutritive value, and selected by cattle were aspen fleabane, aspen peavine, and agoseris in the mountain grassland type.

Elk sedge was the major forage species in the aspen type. Introduction. Aspen (Populus tremuloides) harvesting in central and western Canada can enhance the abundance of ungulate forage by setting mature forest stands back to an earlier successional valued forage species that increase following clearcutting are seen as undesirable by the forest industry when they negatively impact white spruce (Picea glauca) and lodgepole pine (Pinus Cited by: WINNIPEG — Forage crops in Western Canada are in a much better place this spring compared to a year ago because the early arrival of spring will benefit crop development.

The milder winter was. 4 Forage & grassland guide C anada has about 33 million acres of cultivated forage crops and an additional 36 million acres of native or unimproved pastures and rangeland.

While many think of native pasture as “unimproved,” those with a true appreciation for the value of forage and grassland tend to think of it as “naturally perfect.”. For this reason, if cutting reed canary for stored forage, the cutting height should be fairly high at 3 - 5 inches ( mm).

Perennial Ryegrass and Tall Fescue Perennial ryegrass makes excellent pasture, but generally does not last more than years in our Ontario environment.

Highlight: Portions of western Canada, which include the boreal mixedwood, aspen parklands, lower foothills, and the montane forest regions, contain large expanses of aspen. These regions are favorable for consideration as game ranching areas because of a shallow snow cover, productive soils, variety of vegetative types, and a variety of native wild ungulates, including bison (Bison bison.
