uSask purchases farmland to relocate livestock operations

September 13, 2010

The University of Saskatchewan has finalized negotiations to buy 11 quarters of farmland south of Clavet in order to move urban livestock operations to a rural setting. The $2.4-million deal satisfies a number of requirements outlined in Vision 2057: University Land Use Planning, a process developed to ensure uSask can use urban lands to their highest potential over the next 50 years. One of those requirements was to find a new location for the Beef Research Unit. The purchase will take effect May 1, 2011. uSask On Campus News
