Program looks to connect researchers to the beef industry

Applications for the 2019-20 term of the BCRC Beef Researcher Mentorship Program are being accepted until May 1.

Four researchers were selected to participate in the program this past year, with each paired with two mentors — an innovative producer and another industry expert.

The program, launched in 2014, connects new applied researchers with the beef industry.

Along with mentorship, program participants attend industry events, and tour farms and ranches to better understand the impacts, practicalities, and economics of adopting research results.

Application forms are at beefresearch.ca.
