The 10,800 square-foot student residence building at the UBC Dairy Education and Research Centre was officially opened on September 16, 2015. The residences will allow students and researchers from across B.C., and around the globe to live on-site at the Agassiz research station, and more closely monitor their research projects in dairy cattle welfare, animal reproduction, and resource recovery.
Funding for this project was generously provided by: B.C. Dairy Association (DIREC); Greenbelt Veterinary Services; Hi-Pro Feeds; Kamloops Okanagan Dairymen’s Association; Mainland Milk Producers Association; and milk revenues generated by the UBC dairy herd.
