145 Dairy Farmers of Canada representatives from across the country visited the UBC Dairy Education and Research Centre on July 13, 2015.
The representatives were in Vancouver for their annual conference and elected to tour the Dairy Centre’s facilities as part of their pre-conference activities. Graduate students and other scientists showcased their research, much of which is funded by Dairy Farmers of Canada. The visitors were fascinated by the research facilities and impressed with the students’ work in animal welfare and animal reproduction.
The Dairy Centre was recently selected as a finalist for the Dairy Farmers of Canada’s 2015 Dairy Farm Sustainability Award.
