Be sure to consider applying for the International Livestock Congress (ILC) Calgary Student Program. (Or if you know students interested in beef-related research, please encourage them to take a look at this.)
The ILC Calgary Student Program is open to senior level undergraduate and graduate students across Canada and around the world. Participants will visit Calgary, Alberta and surrounding areas July 8-11, 2014. Highlights will include:
- tours of several facilities, including a feedlot, packing plant, and retailer (see the tour agenda)
- attending the conference to learn and discuss some of the industry’s current challenges and opportunities (see the conference agenda)
- meeting leaders and experts in Canada’s beef sector
- visiting the 2014 Calgary Stampede
The ILC Calgary Student Program is an excellent opportunity for future beef, cattle and forage
researchers to see facilities involved in various aspects of beef production, and to broaden their networks with industry players. This experience could be valuable in their understanding of industry’s research needs and how to develop innovations with a practical, solution-based focus.
Applications for 2014 travel bursaries are currently being accepted. Visit http://www.ilccalgary.com/html/student.html for more information.
Deadline for applications is May 1, 2014.
