Research builds my agriculture community

New ways of processing grain by-products to make feedstocks that are better for milk production will benefit both grain and dairy farmers across Canada.

Albert Leyenhorst and his son, Logan, are second and third generation dairy and cash crop farmers in Dalmeny, Sask. The navy blue silos and red roofs of their farm can be spotted from a great distance; their purebred Holstein herd, and producing quality milk and strong, healthy cows, is their shared passion. To stay ahead of the curve, the Leyenhorsts have teamed up with the University of Saskatchewan’s Canadian Feed Research Centre in nearby North Battleford.

To stay ahead of the curve, the Leyenhorsts have teamed up with the University of Saskatchewan’s Canadian Feed Research Centre in nearby North Battleford. The unique research facility is developing new ways of processing grain by-products to make feedstocks that are better for milk production, for the good of both grain and cattle farmers across Canada. The Leyenhorsts test those feedstocks on their farm.

Canada Foundation for Innovation

The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) was built on the ideals of thinking big and investing in areas that matter to Canadians. Since its creation in 1997, the CFI has ensured Canadian researchers have the tools — the cutting-edge labs, facilities and equipment — they need to push the frontiers of knowledge in all disciplines, and to contribute to the full spectrum of research — from discovery to technology development.
