UBC Dairy Education and Research Centre

The University of British Columbia in conjunction with Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) and the BC dairy industry established the UBC Dairy Education & Research Centre located in Agassiz, BC. The Dairy Centre is designed to provide education and technology transfer research programs in support of the dairy industry in BC. UBC Properties has developed three facilities on behalf of the UBC Dairy Education & Research Centre: the Feed Intake Research Facility, the Heifer Research Facility and the Westgen Calf Research Facility. All of these animal research buildings are equipped with video cameras and lighting so that animal behaviour can be continuously monitored throughout the day and are equipped to continuously measure individual animal feed intake.
