Once again Livestock Gentec would like to invite the members of DRECA and its partners to join us at the Western Canadian Dairy Seminar for an informal get together where we can mingle and discuss both our work as well as the potential collaborative opportunities that may exist.

The session will be held in the Palermo Room of the Red Deer Sheraton Thursday March 8th starting at approximately 6:30pm.

Invited members include DRECA participants from the University of Alberta, the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, Alberta Milk, and invited guests including Genome Alberta, and Alberta Innovates.  

Please feel free to extend this invitation to your graduate students attending the WCDS.  For the past four years it has proven to be a great opportunity to meet other researchers and individuals who together with their affiliated organizations are working to strengthen the Canadian Dairy Industry.
