GUELPH — Ontario beef farmers who demonstrate good use of resources through pasture management could win $500 through the Mapleseed Pasture Award.
The winner of the award, sponsored by the Beef Farmers of Ontario, Ontario Forage Council and Mapleseed, will be announced at the BFO’s annual general meeting next February.
In the nomination form, farmers would need to answer eight questions, include a sketch of the farm and give specific information about types of grazing used and the health costs saved.
