CANADA - A leading beef research organisation has unveiled an information source said to take knowledge transfer in cattle science a step forwards.
The Beef Research Council has broadened the scope of its website to cater for other cattle and forage-related research, allowing external research to be submitted.
Similar organisations can now log into www.beefresearch.ca and draft fact sheets using templates to assist in website navigation.
“Sharing research results is important," said Rob Hand of the Alberta Crop Industry Development Fund Ltd. "The BCRC’s initiative to co-publish related research allows for greater distribution of results ensuring that targeted audiences are more likely to get up-to-date information."
Andrea Brocklebank, BCRC Executive Director said: “The BCRC has always worked hard to communicate the objectives and results of in-progress and completed research projects funded by the National Check-off and the Beef Cattle Industry Science Clusters.
“Especially since launching BeefResearch.ca in August 2012, we’ve seen huge interest by producers and industry groups in our concise fact sheets, so in the collaborative spirit of the National Beef Research Strategy and the Science Clusters, we have built the capability for other organizations to develop and share similar fact sheets through the same channel.”
