The Canadian Forage and Grassland Association/ Canadienne pour les Plantes (CFGA) is the national voice for all sectors of the forage and grassland industry.

Formed in 2010 to provide a national voice for all Canadians who produce hay and forage products and for those whose production is dependent upon forage and grassland production, the main role of the CFGA is to uphold the robust forage industry and realize the potential of the domestic and export forage market.

Look around our website to see how we’re doing this.

Supporting our livestock industry – our high-quality hay is a staple for livestock producers across Canada.

Our excellent weather conditions and the abundance of fresh water, clean air and fertile soil lends itself to the production of the highest quality hay in the world. Several types of forage are produced in Canada, including bromes, fescues, timothy, alfalfa, clover and orchard grass.

Our production supports the dairy, beef, sheep and horse industry domestically and abroad.

CFGA is the umbrella organization for the provincial and regional councils, providing a coordinated voice for the sector.

The board of directors is focused on:

  • Raising the profile of the industry with its work on innovation
  • Marketing and sales
  • Increased profits for member producers

The board also works on behalf of forage exporters, helping navigate issues such as transportation costs, currency rates, protocols, energy costs, and market demands.
