WATERLOO COUNTY — After a two-year pandemic hiatus, the Ontario Forage Expo is back.
The Ontario Forage Council and the Waterloo County Soil and Crop Improvement Association have jointly announced the event’s 2022 return, at the St. Jacob’s farm of Scott and Darlene Martin.
Ontario Forage Expo – Forage Equipment Demonstrations and Trade Show will go ahead July 14, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the 161 Hawkesville Road property.
Attendees will have the chance to watch the latest forage equipment in head-to-head field trials. If the technology is involved in making hay, count it being there. See mowers, conditioners, rakes, tedders, windrow inverters, mergers, harvesters, dump wagons, large round balers, large square balers, small square bale bundlers, and bale wrappers and bale grapplers.
OMAFRA’s Ian McDonald will be in the field, offering his expertise and answering questions in concert with the equipment companies.
The event is free. Lunch will be available on-site at a nominal fee, with no pre-registration required.
For businesses interested in taking part, organizers say that trade show, demonstration and sponsorship opportunities are still available, though space is limited and expected to fill quickly.
