You have come to the virtual home of West-Central Forage Association. WCFA is a non-profit, membership based, producer driven, agricultural research and extension organization that serves forage and livestock producers in the West-central region of Alberta. 

Since 1978, WCFA has served the needs of forage and livestock producers in the region by demonstrating new agricultural technology and production practices through extension activities, applied research & demonstration, and knowledge sharing. WCFA works with industry, government, producers and other stakeholders to serve the needs of producers in the region. 

We encourage you to browse our website and check out the number of resources we have available. You will find information on a number of projects, research trials, demonstrations, programs and events that we are currently involved with, or have worked on previously. We encourage you to check back regularly and follow us on social media to stay up to date on all the exciting things we are working on. Be sure to check out our Publications page for additional industry resources, photos and videos, annual reports and the "Forage Views" newsletter. 


WCFA employs three full-time staff members at the office near Sangudo, AB. As well, a volunteer board of directors ensures we are addressing the most prominent issues for local producers.

WCFA relies on financial support from a variety of partners in order to effectively serve producers in the region. Without the support we receive from these partners we would not be able to deliver programming to our members.
