SRUC invites you to an open day at Rugby Farmers Market, Stoneleigh Park, in collaboration with CIEL and Signet, where the new mobile CT scanner will be on display.Â The CT scanner is currently being used within terminal sire breeding programmes in the UK to accelerate genetic gains in carcass composition traits, as well as for various research projects. The mobile nature of the new CT scanner presents opportunities to expand the use of this technology to investigate other traits and species at sites throughout the UK.
Please see the attached invitation for more details. We would very much like to welcome you on the day, show you the scanner, and discuss opportunities for your business.
