Register for BFO's Cow-Calf Management Tour

Beef Farmers of Ontario invite you to join us for farm tours of commercial and purebred cow-calf producers across Simcoe County. This event will provide an opportunity to learn from other cow-calf producers, along with a tour of a feedlot to understand the attributes that lead to calves performing well throughout the feeding period. We look forward to having presentations about rotational grazing plans and pasture management.

IMPORTANT FUNDING NOTE: The Cow-Calf Management Tour is an OSCIA-recognized On-Farm Climate Action Fund (OFCAF) Knowledge Sharing Event for applicants with approved Rotational Grazing Systems projects. Questions about OFCAF should be directed to OFCAF@ontariosoilcrop.org.

Registration

Full registration includes evening dinner and hotel accommodations on the night of August 26th, along with breakfast and lunch on August 27th. Please register by Friday, August 19 to avoid disappointment!
