New cattle herd for Lakeland College

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Lakeland College has developed a new livestock research team, which will manage Lakeland’s livestock research projects, as well as a new herd of 50 cattle for research projects and demonstrations.

“Since we already demonstrate a purebred beef herd and an intensively managed beef herd, we thought it was a good opportunity to run a group of cattle under a less intensive system to more effectively mimic current beef production practices such as extended grazing and calving on pasture,” said Geoff Brown, head of the college’s Animal Science Technology program.
