August 30, 2019

The Government of Ontario has officially opened the Ontario Beef Research Centre in Elora. The $15.5M centre will be operated by the University of Guelph under its partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. The Centre will support research related to animal welfare, reproduction, and nutrition, as well as meat quality and safety. Our government is investing in beef research to help discover the latest beef farming technologies so that we can share this information with farmers which will allow them to adopt new practices to stay competitive," said Ernie Hardeman, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. "When Ontario farmers adopt the latest science-based practices, they become more efficient, sustainable and profitable." ON | UoGuelph (ON)
