Hideki Yatsu & Edward Merced, from the Snow Brand Seed Co. in Hokkaido, Japan and Portland, Oregon, respectively, visited their timothy entry in the BCFC forage trials in Vanderhoof on Monday. They toured the trials at the Muir farm at Mapes and the Wiens farm on Highway 16W with local farmers and members of BCFC. They also learned about the role of late maturing Climax timothy in local forage mixtures and about livestock and hay operations in the area. June 13, 2005. Photo by Jim Tingle.
