Theproject is led by Dr Gisèle LaPointe of UoGuelph’s Ontario Agricultural College (OAC) with experts from OAC and the Ontario Veterinary College. It will examine the impact that farm management practices have on microbes, which are transmitted to the milk and affect its processing and shelf life. The project is funded by $3.5M from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and $2.6M in funding and in-kind support from four other organizations. “By enhancing health, improving environmental sustainability and supporting Canada’s vital dairy sector, the Dairy Alliance embodies key U of G values and promises to improve dairy products,” said UoGuelph VP (research) Dr Malcolm Campbell.
