Field Day

Livestock Gentec Field Days

2017 marked our 4th annual summer field day, the ”Cow-Forage Gentec Tour”, where we co-hosted with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and Alberta Agriculture at the Lacombe Research Centre. Attendees ranged from producers, academics, and students, to individuals from government and non-profit organizations as well as agriculture-related exhibitors; and with nearly 200 people in attendance, the day was a resounding success in sharing research!

This inaugural field day was extra special in that we combined the timing with our annual conference and with the re-naming of the Kinsella Research Ranch to the Roy Berg Kinsella Research Ranch in order to honour the “Alberta father of crossbreeding”, Dr. Roy Berg.
