Forage Seed Summer Tour
It is BC's turn to host this year PRFSA's 2014 Summer Tour. This year we will be partnering with the University of Northern BC and the Peace River Forage Association of BC and joinging in on an interactive soils and forage course. It will be held on Saturday, July 5th, 2014. This will provide members with an opportunity to see a variety of projects that the PRFSA is or has contributed to. This includes re-vegetation of land disturbed by oil & gas activities, BC pest monitoring and the Peace Forage Seeding Tool. For the details of the tour, here is a working draft of the agenda. Cost for the day is $50 and includes lunch. Please register no later than June 27th, 2014 as spaces are limited! Call Talon or Chris at 1 877 630 2198.

Peace Forage Seeding Tool
This new online tool is based off of the BC Rangeland Seeding Manual published in 2013. It goes through an interactive decision making process to help users select forage species to seed, create seed mixtures with a seed mix calculator and even connect with seed suppliers! Check out the tool and it's progress here.
