Applications for the 2016-17 Beef Cattle Research Council’s Beef Researcher Mentorship Program are now being accepted.
Four researchers were selected for the program last year and paired with mentors — innovative producers and industry experts — for a one-year term, which ends on July 31. They have reported very successful and valuable experiences, including establishing partnerships with industry officials and other researchers; learning more about topics such as production, beef quality, and the value chain in discussions with producers and industry leaders; and attending industry events and taking farm tours.
The BCRC is encouraging applications from upcoming and new applied researchers in Canada whose studies are of value to the beef industry, such as cattle health and welfare; beef quality; food safety; genetics; feed efficiency; or forages.
More information and the application form can be found at beefresearch.ca. The deadline to apply is June 1.
