CGIL seminar this week will be presented by Dr. Jacques P. Chesnais
Dr. Jacques Chesnais completed his graduate studies in France, where he joined INRA as a research scientist in 1974. He moved to the Animal Research Institute of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in Ottawa in 1977, to work in dairy cattle research. In 1981, he became Geneticist and later Director of the Genetic Evaluation Division of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, which was responsible for the development and operation of genetic evaluation programs for livestock in Canada. In 1995, Dr Chesnais became the General Manager of the Canadian Centre for Swine Improvement, an organization created by the Canadian pork industry to lead and coordinate the development of swine genetic improvement activities. He joined the Semex Alliance in January 2003, as Senior Geneticist. In this capacity he is responsible for providing scientific guidance to the company’s selection program, and for directing its research and development activities in genetics and genomics.
This Friday, Dr. Chesnais will give us a talk entitled: “Current and future trends in research and development in the dairy cattle breeding industry”.
