Applications for the 2016-17 term of the Beef Cattle Research Council (BCRC) Beef Researcher Mentorship Program are now being accepted.

The deadline to apply is June 1.
Last year four researchers were selected for the program year and paired with mentors — innovative producers and industry experts — for a one-year term (ending July 31). Each of the researchers have reported very successful and valuable experiences through the opportunities provided, including:
• establishing partnerships with industry and other researchers to further their research programs;
• meeting several producers and industry leaders with whom they ask questions and have meaningful discussions about cattle production, beef quality and safety, and the Canadian beef value chain;
• attending industry events and touring farms and ranches to better understand the impacts, practicalities and economics of adopting research results.
The BCRC is inviting applications from upcoming and new applied researchers in Canada whose studies are of value to the beef industry, such as cattle health and welfare, beef quality, food safety, genetics, feed efficiency, or forages.
A new group of participants will begin their mentorships on August 1st.
