PLEASE NOTE: The Ontario Forage Crops Committee (OFCC) is now defunct.
The OFCC was made up of representatives of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, the Canadian Seed Growers Association, the Canadian Seed Trade Association, the Dairy Farmers of Ontario, the Ontario Cattlemen's Association, the Ontario Forage Council, the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs, the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association, and the University of Guelph.
The OFCC reviewed research work on forage species and had used this information to prepare production recommendations. As part of this effort, the committee evaluated under Ontario conditions the performance of experimental varieties of forages. Tests were conducted each year by the following co-operative agencies: The University of Guelph agricultural research stations at Elora, Kemptville, and New Liskeard, and the Thunder Bay Agricultural Research Station.
