Attn Extension Agents: BCRC Opens Call for Letters of Intent
The Beef Cattle Research Council invites letters of intent (LOIs) for technology transfer and production economics projects. The application deadline for this call is August 19, 2022, at 11:59 PM MT.
The purpose of this targeted call is to achieve specific objectives in the Canadian Beef Research and Technology Transfer Strategy and the National Beef Strategy. This call for technology transfer LOIs is made possible by the recent increase in the Canadian Beef Cattle Check-Off in most provinces. Approved projects, funded by Canadian cattle producers through the Canadian Beef Cattle Check-Off, will be required to use the industry funding to leverage additional funds from government or other funding organizations to fulfill project budgets.
Through extensive consultation with research teams and industry stakeholders to identify critical needs and key areas where the BCRC can have the greatest impact, target outcomes have been clearly defined for the call. Please refer to the problem statements listed within the documents linked below before deciding whether to submit an LOI.
Technology Transfer and Production Economics Funding Application
Proposed projects up to two years in length may be submitted. The BCRC will provide a maximum of 50% of the project budget, with a maximum BCRC contribution of $50,000 per project. Refer to the documents below and watch for a webinar announcement in the coming weeks for more information.
