Consumers and producers invited to take part in a conversation about biotechnology and livestock

Not for profit research organization Genome Alberta is hoping to break down some doors on one of the most divisive issues in the agriculture industry. The organization will be hosting seminars about biotechnology in livestock production across the province starting later this month. Mike Spears, Director of Communications, says they would like to have an open, unbiased conversation both with those working in the livestock industry, and consumers who may have concerns about what they are feeding their families.

“We want to hear what they have to say so that we can address it in our research as well, because we do genetics and genomics research strictly on the “geeky science side” so to speak, be we also look at the ethics and the societal implications. That’s a major part of our research efforts, so we want to be able to address those.”

The seminar, which is coming to Grande Prairie on June 11, will be moderated by broadcaster

and writer Don Moon. It is free to attend.
