Check-off at Work | Forage U-Pick: An Interactive Forage Species Selection Tool For Western Canada

Beef Cattle Research Council

Forage U-Pick tool, currently applicable to Western Canadian producers with a national version expected to launch by 2023, is a tool designed to provide users with information for forage selection, forage seeding rates, and weed management. 

The Forage U-Pick tool allows you to select specific criteria to narrow down the options of forages best-suited to your situation. The most important criteria will be “in my field” or “how I want to use the forage.” There are 10 criteria to chose from, but selecting your top two or three priorities will give you the most species results and options. If you want to see all the forage species suited to your zone, simply leave all as “no preference” before selecting view results.

More information about each forage species can be found when you click on each individual species picture and name. Detailed species information was provided from the BC Rangeland Seeding Manual in combination with other provincial resources.
