ATTN Extension Agents: New Funding Program for Regional Activities

The Beef Cattle Research Council (BCRC) is pleased to launch a pilot initiative to support regional extension activities.  

Applicants may apply to receive up to a maximum of $5,000 in funding per activity. Matching funding is encouraged, but not a requirement. Funding will be awarded for all proposals that meet the evaluation criteria until all funds have been committed. Activities must be completed by no later than August 2024.  

These events must involve beef producers and be aligned with the Canadian Beef Research and Technology Transfer Strategy. Activities may include: 

  • extension meetings,  
  • field days,  
  • workshops,  
  • training events or  
  • new engagement ideas.  

Preference will be given to new and innovative engagement ideas such as presenting information in a new format or demonstrating a new technology.  

Applications must be submitted using the online application form no later than September 15, 2023. Successful applicants will be notified via email. Program closure will be updated on the call for proposals page.
