We want to thank the 70 organizations that submitted grant proposals. The proposals covered a wide range of applications throughout the animal production industry and several proposals were outstanding.

After a thoughtful and thorough review process that included input from independent industry leaders, we are awarding almost one million dollars in C-Lock Inc. equipment to 5 outstanding proposals. The proposals selected were quite diverse, including a new application of GreenFeed in pig production, developing a regional training center for greenhouse gas measurement located in Benin, Africa, and a focused effort to improve the genetics in beef production so that more efficient and environmentally friendly animals can be produced.

We look forward to sharing more details about the selected proposals in the coming weeks.
