LRF Dr Michael Bradfield Bursary

2024 / 2025

For a deserving Post-Graduate Student in Animal Breeding & Genetics

This Bursary is offered in honour of the late Dr Michael Bradfield. Funded by the Livestock Registering Federation (LRF), the Michael J. Bradfield Bursary provides a support for post graduate students in Animal Breeding and Genetics.

Dr Bradfield worked as a genetics consultant for over 20 years and played an instrumental part in the implementation and ongoing management of the genetic evaluation system, BREEDPLAN, and on-farm software, HerdMASTER, throughout southern Africa.
Besides being a passionate and dedicated leader in his field, Michael was also a great champion for the under privileged and this scholarship is presented with this same spirit of inclusion.
