||Notes: F&A (IDC), PI salaries, tuition, and equipment costs will not be considered as part of the $100,000 request. Research ideas should be novel and of high industry value and proposals should focus on one or more of the sustainability pillars (social, economic, and environmental) as they pertain to the beef industry, identifying areas of improvement. May include proposals for:
- Research trials on the implications of removing cattle from grazing lands, as it relates to all three sustainability pillars
- Surveys or research on the socioeconomic component of sustainability throughout the beef supply chain and in rural communities. A focus on worker safety is prioritized.
