BCRC Benefits of research for producers

Click here to watch it now if you missed Reynold Bergen discussing the benefits of research.

Reynold Bergen, Science Director, Beef Cattle Research Council (BCRC) for the Canadian Cattlemen's Association. He coordinates research priorities and funding between beef and cattle research funders and the BCRC. Bergen understands the importance of communicating research results back to producers so they can be implemented in industry practices.

Reynold will be talking about the BCRC, who they are, what they do, and their research priorities. He'll discuss what projects are being funded and how they get value from the research results. He has information to share on the BCRC's relatively new tech transfer initiative, and will wrap things up with a Q&A period.

Webinars

Webinars are like attending a conference, but in your own home or office. You log onto a website, turn up your computer speakers or join by phone. The moderator will let you know when the webinar is about to begin and will keep the event moving smoothly. As a participant, you will be able to ask questions throughout the webinar.

The ABP webinars are free to attend. Our aim is to present speakers and topics that are engaging, entertaining and informative. We want producers to walk away feeling like they’ve learned something new that can be applied to their own operations. ABP will host one webinar a month, always at 7 p.m. MST. Each session will be 30 minutes of speaker time, with up to 30 minutes after for questions and conversation.

Don’t have high speed Internet? That’s okay. You can join by phone with the phone number provided. Aren’t available when the webinar is live? You can either download it off the ABP website 48 hours after it’s ended or call the office and we will mail it to you on DVD.

We appreciate registration prior to the event, but it's not nessesary. By registering early, you will receive a reminder email before the webinar, along with an easy web link to join in.

So grab that cup of coffee and join us as we tackle issues, trends and tips with producers from across Alberta. We look forward to great speakers, lively discussion and a ton of learning.
