The University of Saskatchewan and Boehringer Ingelheim Canada have launched a five-year partnership and announced a $250,000 funding boost from Boehringer.

Boehringer’s contribution will support cow-calf research and data collection on animal safety and handling techniques at the Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence’s new Boehringer Ingelheim Cattle Handling and Teaching Unit, located at Clavet, a news release states. Boehringer is also providing technical expertise in research protocol review and modernization in the areas of pain management, animal well-being and disease prevention.

The Boehringer Ingelheim donation builds on industry contributions to the centre made by A&W Canada, the Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association and Farm Credit Canada.
