Mike Hittinger is a cattle producer and Board Chair for Gateway Research Organization (GRO). He and his wife Melissa have run a cow/calf operation east of Clyde, Alberta for 18 years.
Mike applied to the On-Farm Climate Action Fund (OFCAF) to help enhance his farm’s grazing system. He plans to make their pastures more resilient to climate change — better able to handle excess moisture and weather droughts. We had the opportunity to connect with Mike to talk about his experience with OFCAF and how this program may be able to help other producers transition into new farming ideas.
