Advancing Research Impact (Research Magazine)

Through the Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance, we conduct research that supports and strengthens the Ontario agri-food industry and rural sectors. The Agri-Food Yearbook, developed in partnership with the Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance, is a research magazine profiling Alliance research and innovations. Research supported by the alliance solves real-world challenges and yields meaningful inno­vations that ensure the success of the province’s agri-food sector and that promote rural economic development throughout Ontario and the world. The University of Guelph is committed to improving life by sup­porting the people, places and programs that generate solutions with global impact. We help build strong rural communities and a prosperous, safe and environmentally sustainable agri-food sector in Ontario — now and for the future.

Canada's dairy university - Global leaders in advancing dairy (Strategically Themed Newsletter)

Canada’s dairy sector is vital to the nation’s health, sustainability and economy, and to the University of Guelph.

Canadian dairy products meet the highest standards, and come from cows that are productive, healthy and well cared-for. Modern Canadian dairy farmers and processors invest in new technology and equipment, and support research at Guelph to ensure continuous
improvement in animal welfare, genetics, product quality and sustainable productivity.

That’s where Dairy at Guelph comes in. As a network of more than 60 faculty members and other researchers, Dairy at Guelph fosters collaboration and synergies in discovery, development and implementation. This global leadership has earned us the title of Canada’s Dairy

Dairy at Guelph strives to increase awareness of the tremendous dairy research capacity and output at the University of Guelph. The following pages outline that expertise.
