RDAR contributes to Canadian Beef Improvement Network for genetics data platform


Results Driven Agriculture Research (RDAR) has committed $640,000 to a collaborative research project with the Canadian Beef Improvement Network (CBIN) to develop a unified, standardized, and producer-accessible beef cattle genetics data platform.

Eight Canadian beef cattle breed associations have committed to participate in the development of CBIN to date, under the leadership of the Canadian Beef Breeds Council.

Through the data-driven platform, CBIN will provide commercial cattle producers and the entire beef production chain with access to on-farm, on-demand genetic data that will help better inform genetic decisions with a goal to improve herd quality, and inform marketing and genetic selection decisions.

“Data-driven genetic decisions and adoption of innovative genetic technologies will benefit all segments of the Canadian beef production chain from conception right through to consumption,” says David Sibbald, president of the Canadian Beef Breeds Council, and CBIN chair. “Genetics has the potential to create benefits across the board, in the areas including, but not limited to, production efficiencies, environmental sustainability, animal health and welfare, food security, and food product outcomes.”

CBIN’s work will drive the integration and adoption of genetic innovations, standardizing genetic data capture, and simplifying data access, assisting Canadian beef producers in making better decisions.

RDAR’s funding contributions, $576,000 of which is coming from the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, are valued at $640,000 over 18 months.
