The Saskatchewan Forage Council (SFC) was officially formed May 2, 1988 by a visionary group of forage industry stakeholders. The original board of directors included: Robert McGillivray, S.E. Beacom, Les Bohrson, Rodney Duczek, Don Gayton, Clare Phillips, Ken Stoner, Greg Sommerfeld and Bill Weighill.  This group represented people from the forage seed, research, export, processing and livestock sectors - indicating that since its inception in 1988, the SFC has recognized and embraced the diversity of the forage industry.

2013 SFC AGM & TourThe SFC was formed as a means to provide the forage industry with a voice. The formation of a provincial council would be a way to pull those working on forage issues together. Also, forages were not adequately represented by other crop commodity groups, thus there was a gap to be filled.

It is important to acknowledge the hard work and vision of all the former board members and employees that have helped make this council a success. Here’s to another 25 years serving the forage industry!
