A $38 million agricultural research centre opened at the University of Saskatchewan near Saskatoon on October 9. The Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence (LFCE) aims to be a world leader in forage and beef production research, spanning the entire beef cattle production chain. The centre aims to forge stronger connections between academia and industry in order to bring new technologies to producers. It drew a $10 million federal-provincial investment in 2015 under Growing Forward 2, the previous policy framework for Canada's agricultural and agri-food sector. That framework was replaced this past spring by the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP), a five-year federal-provincial-territorial (FPT) cost-shared investment program worth $3 billion, with $388 million for Saskatchewan’s agricultural initiatives.
