The two day event focusing on the beef sector runs December 14th and 15th in Swift Current.

Range Management Extension Specialist Trevor Lennox says they'll be focusing on new and relevant research and practices for forage and livestock.

"It's one forum for the scientists at the research station in Swift Current to share some of their research. So we have some livestock and forage scientists at the research station in Swift Current here. We also use it as an opportunity to bring some of the scientists from the University of Saskatchewan out."

Lennox says one topic for producers that's always popular is livestock nutrition.

"So we've got a livestock nutritionist talking on dressing livestock nutrition we've got Dr. Greg Penner he's a scientist at the University Saskatchewan talking on using some non-conventional feeds so helping us think outside the box so to speak on what other feed options we might look to explore."

This year's theme for the Foraging into the Future Conference is "Adding Value in Unconventional Times".

Registration information for the event is available here.
