A jam packed day of agronomy expertise will once again be on display at this year's Lacombe Field Day on Wednesday, July 24 at the Lacombe Field Crop Development Centre.
New data and analysis from a survey of barley samples from across Alberta will help Canadian livestock producers and industry get more bang per bite from this important feed ingredient. The survey was led by Canadian Bio-Systems Inc. (CBS Inc.) and the University of Manitoba, with sample collection assistance from the Alberta Barley Commission.
Livestock producers are being asked to monitor their animals for poor feed intake as well as reduced milk or meat production after a examination of crops harvested in Canada last year.
An Alberta based internationally renowned cereal breeder and research scientist has been honoured by the American Society of Agronomy.
November has arrived, meaning regional meetings for the crop commissions and livestock groups are starting. A chance for farmers to have their voice heard and influence the industry.
