| ||Greenfeed and silage production statistics for Alberta are not available from Statistics Canada or any other source, although producers in the province harvest significant acreage of annual crops for greenfeed and silage every year. To fill this data gap and to meet client needs, the Statistics and Data Development Branch of Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development initiated a greenfeed and silage production survey in 2002. Since then, the survey has been conducted annually, to develop selected statistics for the forage industry. As in previous years, the 2011 survey was conducted in partnership with Agricultural Fieldmen and Agriculture Financial Services Corporation. The survey collected data on greenfeed and silage acreage, yields and production at the municipality level. The information was then used, along with input from Alberta Agriculture specialists, to develop provincial estimates. The yield and production estimates in this report are on a wet weight basis. The document includes graphs of Total Harvested Tame Hay and Sum of Greenfeed and Silage Area from 2002 – 2011.
