Farm Credit Canada is investing $225,000 in three Canadian Universities, including here in Saskatchewan to help support agricultural programs and research projects.

The University of Saskatchewan’s new Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence at Clavet will be receiving the investment from Farm Credit Canada.

Marty Seymour is FCC’s Director of Industry and Stakeholder Relations.

He says as a company that is completely focused on Agriculture across the country it makes sense to support and invest in the future of Agriculture.

"Young people entering our industry weather their working professionals or weather coming in as farmers, it's a natural play for us, we're in the business of advancing Canadian ag, and partnering with universities is just a natural marriage."

Seymour talks about their decision to invest $100 thousand to the project:

"If we can do stronger research in the forage side of the cattle industry, I think it just sets our industry to be competitive and give Saskatchewan a foot hole and an anchor in beef production."

FCC is contributing $100 thousand to the University of Saskatchewan’s new Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence at Clavet, $100 thousand to Dalhousie University’s Agricultural Campus, in Nova Scotia and $25 thousand to Ontario’s Agricultural College at the University of Guelph.
