West-Central Forage Association

About

What We Do

West-Central Forage Association (WCFA) is a non-profit agricultural organization based out of Sangudo, 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, and knowledge sharing. The results obtained from research plots and demonstrations, along with current issues of agricultural significance, are shared with producers through meetings, training seminars, field tours, our regular newsletter "Forage Views" and on this website. A volunteer Board of Directors helps to ensure that we are addressing the most prominent issues to local producers.

WCFA's region encompasses 10 million acres (4 million hectares) and work is done in cooperation with six local counties (Yellowhead, Parkland, Leduc, Woodlands, Brazeau, and Lac Ste. Anne), Alberta Agriculture Food and Rural Development, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, the Stewardship Alliance for Conservation Agriculture (SACA), other federal and provincial organizations, and local industry.

WCFA's offices are located within the Lac Ste. Anne County Fire Services Building at 5024-50 Street Sangudo, AB 

Office hours: 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. 

*In light of recent COVID restriction announcements, until further notice staff will only be available in the office on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday. All staff will be working remotely on Monday & Friday. If you are planning to come in to the office we ask that you please call ahead.
