Speakers: Tara Mulhern Davidson, Extension Writer, Beef Cattle Research Council
Tara Mulhern Davidson works with the Beef Cattle Research Council as an extension writer and has experience managing beef, forage, and communications projects for many organizations. Tara spent years working in prairie conservation and range and riparian management, and enjoys exploring ecosystem management from a ranching perspective. She ranches with her family near Ponteix, Saskatchewan.
Tamara Carter, Saskatchewan Forage Council
Tamara Carter, her husband Russ and their three children run a mixed farming operation along the South Saskatchewan River near Lacadena, Saskatchewan. They crop 6, 000 acres and run 200 head of commercial Black Angus cattle on 7, 000 acres of native prairie grasslands. Her interest in forages and research led her to the Saskatchewan Forage Council, which she is currently chairing for a third term. She also sits on the Strategic Advisory Board of the recently constructed Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence, in Clavet, SK.
Julie MacKenzie, Saskatchewan Forage Council
Julie MacKenzie is a Professional Agrologist and an active mixed farmer who grew up near Saskatoon, but now farms and consults in the Hazenmore, SK area.
Over the past 18 years, Julie has been active in extension focusing on forages and rangeland agrology, beneficial management practice programming, invasive weed management, source water protection and integrated water management.
Her work with the Sask Forage Council has been on-going for nearly two decades. Julie developed the first Forage Species Adaptation Tool the Council put out in 2007. She was excited to bring her knowledge of the previous Saskatchewan tool forward for the creation of Forage U-Pick for Western Canada.
