Forage and Agronomy Specialist Support 2021
Did you know that producers in Alberta can access forage and crop agronomy support through their local forage or applied research association?
In 2019/20 the Ag-Info Centre began referring callers with Agronomic questions to ARECA member associations, municipal Agriculture Service Board staff, and extension programs at the commodity associations. Grant funds from the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) were secured to support our member associations during this transition.
This program features free consultations on agronomic topics from some well known Alberta specialists previously with the Alberta Government research and extension programs.
Forage Specialist: Grant Lastiwka
Agronomy Specialists: Bill Chapman and Neil Whatley
Ruminant Nutrition: Barry Yaremcio
Farm Business: Ted Nibourg
Producers are encouraged to contact their local association to inquire how to access these services. Links to our member associations can be found under the About tab on our website. In addition to our 6 member associations West Central Forage Association, Peace County Beef and Forage Association and Chinook Applied Research Association are also participating in this program.
