The Olds College Technology Access Centre for Livestock Production (TACLP) focuses on meeting the needs of the Canadian livestock industry by providing access to new technologies that contribute to increased production efficiency, improved animal health and welfare, and environmental sustainability.
We address industry priorities by providing livestock producers, technology developers, and small to medium enterprises access to expertise, facilities, testing services, training, and emerging smart agriculture technologies.
To facilitate and accelerate the Canadian livestock industry’s adoption of new technology, the TACLP provides field-testing and validation of emerging technologies in farm—like conditions, assisting companies with the testing of feed, genetics, and precision livestock farming technology.
