PCBFA Farm Scale Project Survey 

Peace Country Beef and Forage Association is currently in the early stages of building a proposal for a long-term farm scale (220 acres) research project on the integration of regenerative ag practices.  The project will focus strongly on the economic component of the different treatments, and overcoming specific barriers to adoption, as well as soil health and other sustainability parameters. 

We are looking for a lot of producer and industry engagement in building this project, to make it as practical, useful, and relevant as possible.

  

Here's a link to the survey:

NOTICE TO RANCHERS AND PRODUCERS

Cleanfarms is a company that is known mainly for recycling various plastics such as herbicide containers, twine, and clean grain bags. They now will also be taking expired medications and herbicides/pesticides.

According to their website, cleanfarms.ca, they will be in the Fairview area in 2022 but at this time, they are unsure of the dates although probably sometime in the summer.

This notice is to inform you that Clean Farms service will be available, and we ask you not to dispose of the hazardous materials by burning or burying them until they can be brought to them for proper disposal. More information will be given to you via M.D. of Fairview website and social media as we go forward, otherwise check their website in 2022 as there will be more details when they have their times and date set.

Turn Carbon into Cash with Trimble Carbon Credits

Alberta farmers have the opportunity to do their part to help in the effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by observing certain standards. These practices earn farmers 'carbon credits', which they can sell back to regulated industries to 'offset' their emissions. These practices go a long way toward achieving compliance with international environmental standards and—with the right paperwork and data support—they can also put extra cash in farmers' pockets.
There's never been a better time to take advantage of carbon offsets. The value of a carbon credit is $30 per metric tonne (or CO2e), effective January 1, 2019. This price represents a 50% increase over previous years and is expected to increase 66% by 2022!
