University of Alberta Capstone Project

Understanding Producer Needs: A One Welfare Approach

 

Capstone Project Profile

 Four students from the University of Alberta are conducting a Capstone project with mentorship from Alberta Farm Animal Care and faculty member, Dr. Clover Bench. The project is focusing on challenges facing Alberta cow-calf producers and resources available to them. A short survey for producers was conducted and the students will be presenting resources they developed to address the challenges brought forward through the survey. The students will be digitally present during the LCC 2.0 conference day and would like your feedback on the resources developed. Results from this project will be presented in a report to AFAC, and we will utilize the report to guide us in future communication and extension plans.
