MBFI Cover Cropping on the Canadian Prairies Webinar

Cover crops have the potential to bestow numerous agronomic, environmental, and economic benefits on Prairie farms. Despite this, they are often viewed with skepticism by farmers, in part due to local climatic limitations. The recent uptake in cover crop use by farmers in neighbouring US states and in Eastern Canada has encouraged an increasing number of Prairie farmers to experiment with cover crops.  This makes it an important time to hear from farmers about their needs for research and knowledge transfer. Farmers want to know how to use cover crops to meet their goals, and policy makers want information to design conservation BMP programs to meet environmental targets.

To fill these knowledge gaps the 2020 Prairie Cover Crop Survey was developed to provide information to farmers, agronomists, researchers, policy makers, and government organizations. A total of 281 early adopters of cover crops took part, growing 102, 539 acres of cover crops across every major agricultural region of the Prairies.  This presentation will put cover cropping into context for Prairie farmers and stakeholders and describe what type of farms are using cover crops, why farms are using cover crops, cover crop agronomy, what benefits and challenges farms have experienced, and what could be done to enable cover crop use.  This survey of early adopters compliments on-farm and traditional small plot research at the University of Manitoba to understand the short and long term effects of cover crops on soil health and crop productivity in Prairie Cropping Systems.

BCRC Webinar: Don’t Roll the Dice with Johne’s Disease – Use our new Johne’s Risk-Reward Calculator

Speakers: Dr. Cheryl Waldner, Western College of Veterinary Medicine

There is concern that the risk of Johne’s disease in beef herds is increasing in part because of large beef herds and rapid herd dispersals. Johne’s testing is a significant investment of time and money, and testing options are limited to testing individual animals. Canadian surveillance data has been incorporated into a dynamic risk model developed to simulate different options for managing Johne’s disease transmission and control in a cow-calf herd. This webinar will review this new tool for producers and veterinarians.
