The Beef Farmers of Ontario, the Ontario Sheep Farmers, Mapleseed, and the Ontario Forage Council, invite you to nominate a deserving producer for the Mapleseed Pasture Award.
This is an excellent opportunity to recognize individual producers who are doing an outstanding job of pasture management. The Mapleseed Pasture Awards are also a way of encouraging producers to implement pasture management strategies that maximize production per acre.
For each category, Mapleseed contributes a cash award of $250 to the winner. The winner of each category will also be invited to share a presentation about their operation at their respective commodity AGM (pending for 2021 due to COVID safety protocols).
Additional to these prizes and recognition, each winner will receive a 25kg bag of their choice of a Mapleseed Forage Mix.
The deadline to submit applications for the sheep pasture award is October 1, 2021.
The deadline to submit applications for the beef pasture award is November 30, 2021.
To submit a nomination for this award, complete the appropriate application form.
