Cattle genomics & pasture management decisions for productivity, soil carbon and diversity
An information session for cattle producers interested in participating in a study of the relationships between herd genomics and pasture productivity, soil carbon storage and plant diversity.

We are seeking ranches in Alberta to participate in a study of the relationship between cattle genetics and ecosystem services in pastures (e.g., forage production, soil carbon, biodiversity). The project will be among the first to address whether genomic tools can be used to enhance rangeland productivity and environmental outcomes, and will further examine how ranches can incorporate these outcomes into their decision-making processes.

Participating ranches would be able to received information on their herds genetics, information on pasture soils and vegetation as well as optionally participate in an activity where they can model the economics of their operations.

The project is led by Drs. Cameron Carlyle, John Parkins, Graham Plastow and Ellen Goddard at the University of Alberta.
