The RQR is increasing its visibility

The RQR will present the network and its research at multiple events this fall. Amongst others, we will have a booth at the CFAS meeting in September in Ottawa. In addition to visibility in the program booklet, RQR representatives will be present at the Symposium Ovin 2012 and at the 36e Symposium sur les Bovins laitiers.

To reach even more end users, articles will be published in the magazines of the Quebec and Canada agriculture federations during the upcoming months. Further, an article presenting the RQR will be published in the September edition of the magazine Porc Québec.
