  Ontario Pasture Competition

Pickseed, the Ontario Cattlemen's Association, OMAFRA and Association of Community Pastures will be sponsoring the Ontario Pasture Competition again in 1999. The competition is open to producers using pasture in the production of beef. The competition promotes excellence in grazing management. Good pastures are planned, they just don't happen. Good pasture and good management are the keys for profitable livestock production.

Producers are evaluated on grazing management strategies, cost of production, innovativeness of management techniques, adoption of technology, productiveness of pasture operation and livestock production. Application forms are available from your local OMAFRA office. Deadline for appellation is Nov.1. Applicants may wish to include pictures and or letters of reference with the nomination form. The winner receives $750 and two honourable mention individuals will be awarded $250.

This award provides an opportunity to recognize producers who are responding to the challenges of the beef business by making the best use of resources available to them through pasture management. Encourage your friends and neighbours to enter.



Eastern Ontario AgriNews is published on the third Monday of each month. The printed version is distributed free by postal mail to farms in Eastern Ontario, Canada.
