October 23, 2018

Lakeland College has become the first postsecondary institution in Alberta to receive Verified Beef Production Plus certification. A Lakeland release states that the certification reflects “the highest standards for food safety, animal care, and environmental stewardship” at the same time as it increases the college’s access to markets for beef sold off of Lakeland’s Student-Managed-Farm. “Lakeland is very progressive and could be an example for future producers. We can help influence students going through the program so they can become familiar with it,” said Alberta VBP+ Provincial Coordinator Melissa Downing. Lakeland
