Livestock Predation Prevention Pilot Project Survey

Check your mailbox for the December issue of Cattle Country – we’ve tucked in an important survey aimed at reducing the risk of livestock predation on farms and ranches.

All Manitoba livestock producers who return the free, postage-paid survey on or before December 21 will be entered in a draw to win a high-quality game camera or pellet barbeque.

Background

This survey is a key component of a Manitoba-based Livestock Predation Prevention Pilot Project. This three-year pilot project has been designed to improve prevention and mitigation strategies in order to reduce economic livestock losses caused by wild predators. The project is funded by the Manitoba Government, Manitoba Beef Producers (MBP) and Manitoba Sheep Association, with additional support from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC) and the Manitoba Trappers Association.

Livestock producers who experience losses due to predators and producers who have not experienced losses due to predators are welcome to fill out the survey. All Manitoba producers who fill out the survey will be entered in the prize draw.

If you didn’t receive your survey please call the MBP offices at 1.800.772.0458 and we’ll get one out to you.
