HAY DAY IS HERE FOR THE EASTERN PART OF THE PROVINCE!
Get a NIR test to see how your field ranks among others in your area
Alfalfa cutting could begin around June 1st in the East, and potentially the Central area, and Central Testing Laboratories is offering a GGNIR (Green Gold NIR) test for only $20 to see how your alfalfa field compares with the area average. This test is similar to the test used to determine NIR readings on fresh alfalfa samples. The protocol for samples is that they must be fresh, at normal cutting height, shipped immediately, and most importantly, contain only alfalfa.

RANCHER-FARMER POLLINATOR CONSERVATION AWARD
Nominate a Manitoba producer for well-deserved national recognition! 
Over the years, Manitoba forage and grasslands producers have shown leadership in conservation efforts and MFGA would like to encourage nominations for this award, offered by The Pollinator Partnership (P2), Canadian Federation of Agriculture (CFA) and Canadian Forage and Grassland Association (CFGA). All individuals or families in Canada currently implementing pollinator protection measures on their farm or ranch are eligible. "The public is becoming increasingly aware of the importance of pollinators, domestic and wild, for the production of many of our everyday foods, fruits, vegetables and crops. We want to encourage Manitoba farmers to support pollinators through their land management," says Jim Lintott, MFGA Board Chair. "Pollinators are critical to our food supply and it's important to recognize farmers who have shown good management of their land to support and increase pollinators."
Nominations are open until July 24, 2015.
