We're now Farming Forward Association!
PLEASE NOTE: NEW WEBSITE UNDER CONSTRUCTION.
This site may not be up to date as we undergo construction of our new virtual home as Farming Forward Association. Thank you for your patience!
Since 1978, Farming Forward (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 "Roots and Ruminants" magazine.
