USask livestock, forage centre receives $6.6M from Canada, SK


The University of Saskatchewan’s (USask) Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence will receive $6.6M over the next five years through the federal and provincial governments. The funding will be used support the centre’s research and educational activities in the livestock and forage industries. “The provincial economic growth targets we’ve set for the end of this decade connect directly to our agriculture industry and to our livestock producers,” explained SK Agriculture Minister David Marit. “This funding for the LFCE directly supports the kind of innovative work that helps our livestock sector not only stay globally competitive but remain a leader when it comes to best practices.”
