The Ontario Forage Council is proud to announce our upcoming annual Forage Focus Conference 2017.  The conference will be held in Shakespeare on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at the Shakespeare Optimist Hall, and in Winchester on Wednesday, December 13th at the Joel Steele Community Centre.  The program and schedule will be the same for both days beginning with registration and trade show, from 9 - 10 am, and speakers until 3:30pm.  Presentations are CEU accredited.  The cost of this years’ conference is $40, and includes conference proceedings and a hot lunch.

The keynote speaker at Forage Focus 2017 will be Robert Berthiaume, Dairy Production Expert in Forage Systems.  Robert Berthiaume obtained his B.Sc. in Agricultural Economics from Laval University, his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in animal science from the University of Guelph.  From 1989 to 2012, Robert was a member of the nutrition team at the Dairy & Swine research centre (AAC) in Lennoxville.  From 2012 to 2017, Robert joined the R&D department at Valacta as dairy production expert in forage systems. Robert retired in July 2012 and does consulting work.
