Lakeland College gets VBP+ certification

Lakeland College is the first post-secondary institution in Alberta to attain Verified Beef Production Plus (VBP+) certification.

Having the school’s herd of 220 beef cattle fall under this certification makes it “an example for future producers,” said Melissa Downing, Alberta VBP+ co-ordinator. “We can help influence students going through the program so they can become familiar with it.”

The college plans to conduct annual VBP+ training workshops with staff and students.
