Do you know a researcher or scientist who has helped make the Canadian beef industry more competitive and sustainable?

The Beef Cattle Research Council is looking for nominations for the Canadian Beef Industry Award for Outstanding Research and Innovation.

The award is for researchers who have been active in Canada for at least five years. Benefit to the industry must be evident in a strong research program aligned with industry priorities; a demonstrated passion and long-term commitment through leadership, teamwork, and mentorship; involvement in ongoing education and training (where applicable); and active engagement with industry stakeholders.
