Ontario Sheep Farmers is committed to funding research. Partnering with other organizations, wherever possible, to work on projects provides better value as expertise can be shared, and resources and funding can be leveraged.
The research committee uses the research priorities, identified through the sheep research strategy, to make recommendations to the Ontario Sheep Farmers board of directors on which projects receive funding. The research priorities do not always change from year to year.
Ontario Sheep Farmers works with the Livestock Research Innovation Corporation (LRIC) to help achieve its research goals.
