About Us

Welcome to GWFA - The Forage Innovators

The Grey Wooded Forage Association was established in 1984 by a group of cattle producers in West Central Alberta who wished to improve their grazing practices. 

We work to create awareness of the uses and potential uses of forages and to share information on a variety of production practices in the livestock and forage sector:   

  • Grazing Management 
  • Riparian Management
  • Environmental Sustainability 
  • Grass Production 
  • Pasture and Perennial Forage Regeneration 

GWFA association serves members in Clearwater County, Mountain View County, Red Deer County, Lacombe County, Ponoka County and the County of Wetaskiwin. 

GWFA hosts a variety of new and ongoing projects and hosts events and pasture walks throughout the year.   

Our Summer Showcase and Annual General Meeting are typically held in late spring or early summer.   

Please contact us if you would like information about becoming a director or joining one of our committees. 

Our Area

A majority of our members can be found in Clearwater, Wetaskiwin, Ponoka, Lacombe, Red Deer and Mountain View Counties. But our reach extends into a large majority of Western Canada.

These counties are also often the ones we partner with for events to better serve our conjoined member base.

Our office is located in Rocky Mountain House Alberta in Clearwater County.
