On May 26th, the Chair in Sustainable Life of Dairy Cattle it was officially established at the R. Howard Webster Centre (Macdonald Campus Farm), McGill University. The ceremony was attended by Provincial and McGill University authorities, partner members of the Chair Novalait, Dairy Farmers of Canada and Valacta, stakeholders and special guests. After the ceremony the guests visited the dairy complex where we had the opportunity to talk to them about our different research topics and answer their questions. Finally a fantastic Brazilian barbeque was served for lunch. We thank you all for your presence and your input during this memorable day. We will give our 100% in order to get the best results for this project!
