The Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association (SCA) is partnering with the University of Saskatchewan (U of S) and other stakeholder groups to build the Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence (LFCE) near Saskatoon with the support of a $4.47 million investment from the Government of Canada.
David Lametti, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for Western Economic Diversification Canada, made the announcement today at the University of Saskatchewan.
The LFCE will consist of two new facilities on U of S land designed to address forage, cow-calf, beef cattle, and environmental research. Once complete in 2018, the LFCE will benefit industry and all Canadians through improvements to beef quality, food safety, productivity, and environmental sustainability.
