Bov-Innovation

The Beef Cattle Research Council (BCRC) is pleased to help power this new extension event for Canadian beef cattle producers.

The first Bov-Innovation was held during the inaugural Canadian Beef Industry Conference in August, 2016. The unique sessions focused on the following six relevant and innovative production practices that can be applied on a farm level.

Following the sessions, attendees were provided the following take-home resources.
