Manitoba Beef and Forage Inc. research projects have started
It now has an official title — Manitoba Beef and Forage Inc. (MBFI) — and some of its first projects are underway.
MBFI has four major partners — Manitoba Beef Producers (MBP), Ducks Unlimited, Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Development (MAFRD) and Manitoba Forage and Grasslands Association (MFGA). They’ve joined to find answers on the latest technology and production methods for the province’s beef producers.
MBP general manager Melinda German provided an update on research projects to the Manitoba Feedlot School at the Brandon Research Station last week.
“This is a lofty goal but I think that it is very important at this time in the industry… more and more industry, academia and government are coming together to make sure that we don’t lose resources but also make sure we are conducting and getting the research out that is important to producers,” German said.
