While UFA is primarily based in Alberta, it is continually looking for new opportunities to champion progressive technology, says Giguere. “This is just one example of how we are providing solutions to address known gaps in traceability and accountability in the Canadian cattle industry.”
UFA is showcasing the Microbeef Technology at the 20th Annual Beef Industry Convention, presented by the Ontario Cattle Feeders’ Association (OCFA) and the Ontario Corn Fed Beef Program (OCFBP) January 11-13, 2018, at the Best Western Lamplighter Inn & Convention Centre (591 Wellington Rd., London, Ontario). Exhibitors represent all sectors of the beef industry, from animal pharmaceuticals, feed, seed, and farm supply to financial institutions and other ag-related industries.
