The Ontario Beef Research Centre – New Liskeard (formerly known as the New Liskeard Beef Research Station) was originally established as a demonstration farm in 1922 by the Ontario Government. Presently, the station consists of 636 acres, of which 400 acres are pastureland for a 160 cow-calf herd with replacement heifers, along with brought-in steers on pasturing trials. There are three barns approved for use, all equipped with a hydraulic squeeze system, which allows for safe handling and weighing of cattle.
