The 2010 Manitoba Forage & Grassland Reference Manual has been revised and is available in PDF format. Or you can call the Manitoba Forage & Grassland Association at (204) 475-2241 for your free CD.
The 2007 Manitoba Forage & Grassland Reference Manual has been posted in its entirety on this site. In this manual you will be able to find a variety of technical fact sheets and articles that should be useful to those in the Forage/Livestock industry in Western Canada. It has been compiled from numerous sources to provide you with a convenient source of information. The Western Forage Beef group’s www.foragebeef.ca website was a key source of information.
This reference information can be used by producers to assist in grazing management planning, investigating alternatives for livestock watering facilities, fencing options, and utilizing a combination of tame and native forage production and management techniques. Please enjoy the information.
