About the BC Living Lab
The BC Living Lab is a collaborative project undertaken by the Investment Agriculture Foundation (IAF) in partnership with nine commodity groups from the Cariboo to the South Coast of British Columbia. Supported through Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Agricultural Climate Solutions program, the BC Living Lab will integrate scientific research into farming operations to test and co-develop practices that work for BC farmers and can contribute to climate change mitigation.
The Cattle & Forage project supports the testing, monitoring, refinement and adoption of BMPs associated with grazing season extension and winter-feeding strategies in BC’s forage and cattle sector. The participating organizations for the Cattle & Forage project are BC Cattlemen’s Association and BC Forage Council.
