Dr. Roy T. Berg was a pioneer in animal genetics with a well deserved international reputation as an eminent meat production scientist. As one of the early researchers to recognize the importance of hybrid vigor through cross breeding programs, his untiring zeal for improving the beef animal is seen in a legacy of "rainbow" herds found across the province. His ability to interpret and present his results as practical alternatives to farmers has been key to Alberta beef producers making their product the best in the world. His knowledge was also tapped in revamping both the national beef and pork grading systems. He had a long and distinguished career with the University of Alberta as a researcher and served as Dean of Agriculture and Forestry from 1982 to 1987.
