SASKATOON – A&W has made a substantial investment in the Canadian beef industry with a $5-million donation toward the University of Saskatchewan’s (U of S) Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence (LFCE).
The unique centre will foster innovative research, training and outreach to meet the needs of both livestock producers and consumers in Canada, while also helping to sustainably produce food for a growing world population.
The donation will be used to fund the construction of the Livestock and Food Building at the LFCE site near Clavet ($3 million), create a community outreach and engagement program ($1 million), and establish a visiting fellowship in One Health research ($1 million). The new building will be completed in the spring of 2018.
