Got beef questions? 

request for proposals 2022

The Oregon Beef Council is inviting research proposals for consideration by their Animal Science Research and Rangeland Science Research Committees. Proposals should focus on research important to Oregon's cattle industry. Approximately $100,000 is available from each committee with estimated total funding of $200,000. 

All past funded research projects with work in progress must apply for continuation funding.    

Preference will be given to projects that have other outside funding sources that leverage and optimize funding from the Oregon Beef Council. Preference will also be given to projects that cite the Oregon State University College of Agricultural Sciences Statewide Cattle Plan in terms of identified research needs and objectives that could help Oregon farmers and ranchers.  

Proposal deadline is 5:00 p.m.  on Friday, February 4, 2022.  Late proposals will not be accepted.  Awards will be announced in March 2022.  Funding will begin September 2022.
