Several on-pasture demonstrations will be held during a field day co-hosted by Livestock Gentec and the Lacombe Research Centre.
The Aug. 22 event at the research centre will focus on better understanding the interactions among cows, forage, and genomics and on optimizing cow/forage production.
The demonstrations include a multi-site legume tour; high- and low-vigour cows and heifers; advances in cow overwintering; and methane measurement in livestock production. There will also be a presentation on how DNA technology is being used to develop forages with shorter dormancy periods.
