And the Winners Are…

By Sarah Sommerfeld, PAg, Regional Forage Specialist

Winners of the 2016 Saskatchewan Forage Harvest Challenge were announced at the Celebrating Rural Ranching Women event held in Maple Creek, SK on March 2 and 3, 2017.  The Saskatchewan Forage Harvest Challenge was initiated by Ministry of Agriculture Regional Specialists to raise awareness to the importance of feed testing.  The Challenge provided producers with a pocket sized field book to record hay field conditions and harvest operations across their forage acres.  In taking the Forage Harvest Challenge, producers were encouraged to submit forage samples for feed testing.  To enter the challenge, producers were asked to provide a copy of the forage analysis with an entry form.

The 2016 Forage Harvest Challenge concluded on January 27, 2017.  All eligible entries received were included into the prize draw.  Winners were selected at random.
