The Beef Farmers of Ontario, the Ontario Sheep Marketing Agency, Mapleseed, and the Ontario Forage Council, invite you to nominate a deserving producer for the Mapleseed Pasture Award.
This is an excellent opportunity to recognize individual producers who are doing an outstanding job of pasture management. The Mapleseed Pasture Awards are also a way of encouraging producers to implement pasture management strategies that maximize production per acre.
For each category, Mapleseed contributes a cash award of $500 to the winner, $250 to cover their accommodation to attend the BFO/OSMA AGM. The winner of each category will also be invited to share a presentation about their operation at their respective commodity AGM.
Additional to these prizes and recognition, each winner will receive a 25kg bag of their choice of a Mapleseed Forage Mix.
The deadline to submit applications for the sheep pasture award is October 1st, 2016.
