Brittany Scott

Research Technician 403.586.2515


Brittany Scott is a Research Technician for the TACLP at Olds College and works primarily with the College’s cattle herd. She has an important role in records management for the cattle on campus and across the Smart Farm. Brittany’s primary responsibilities are performing data collection and entry for various trials occurring within TACLP; monitoring herd health for College cattle, client fee-for service and RFI feed efficiency trials; and analyzing grazing management in relation to plant height and density of forage. She also enjoys the activity surrounding calving and lambing seasons at the College, and is often helping the farm team in the barns on campus. 

Brittany’s favorite part about her job with the livestock team is working with animals, but she also loves spending most of her days outdoors, learning new farm and animal practices, and working side-by-side with the farm team. Brittany grew up on a cow/calf operation outside of Didsbury, and spent eight years as a member of the 4H Beef Club, so working with animals was a natural career choice. 

Brittany went to Lakeland College for two years and took Animal Science Technology with a Beef Major. She then came to Olds College and took the Bachelor of Applied Science Degree - Agribusiness. For her eight-month directed field study, Brittany was the very first student to do their internship on the Olds College Smart Farm — which turned into her permanent job.

When Brittany isn’t at work with the livestock, she is likely on either her parent’s farm or her father-in-law’s farm helping with their cattle operations. In the fall of 2021, Brittany also purchased a few purebred shorthorns to start her own cow herd.

Brittany is a very happy mom to her son, Colt, who she spends every free moment with. Colt is a very busy little boy and absolutely loves tractors, farm equipment and farm animals. His favourite activity is coming along to do farm chores and he lights up when he sees the cows and kitty who lives on his grandparent’s farm (‘kitty’ being his first word). Brittany also loves to go camping as a family during the summer months and spends as much time outdoors as possible.
