Event description

Description

We are excited to announce that we will be hosting our first annual summer field day at the Livestock and Forage Cewntre of Excellence (Clavet units) on June 18. There will be no charge for the day, but we ask that you register with a free ticket so we can be sure to have enough beef-on-a-bun at lunch for everyone!

We have a full day planned, starting with coffee and a tradeshow at 9:30, at our teaching and research units located south of Clavet. The morning program will begin at 10 and we will be wrapped up between 4:30 and 5.

Under One Roof: Coordination and collaboration for the advancement of our industry
Anne Wasko, chair of the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef and a member of the Saskatchewan Agriculture Development Fund advisory committee

The Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence was established through collaboration between industry, government and university and by the very way the centre is governed and funded, this collaboration will continue. Collaboration and coordination are critical components of vibrant and sustainable livestock and forage industries. Listen as Anne Wasko draws on her diverse background – rancher, market analyst, funder (via a seat on the ADF decision committee) and advocate (as chair for the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef) - to share her views and perspectives on the importance of collaboration and coordination in research, extension and general production for the advancement and long-term sustainability and profitability of our livestock and forage industries.
