Manitoba Beef Producers Recognizes Government of Manitoba for AgriRecovery Announcement
Manitoba Beef Producers (MBP) thanks the provincial government for its $62 million contribution toward programs under the AgriRecovery framework aimed at helping livestock producers deal with the devastating consequences of drought.
MBP believes that the investments in initiatives such as feed assistance, feed transportation and cattle transportation, as well as a herd rebuilding program are critically important to Manitoba’s beef sector. In addition to helping producers deal with their immediate feed needs, they will also help them plan for the long-term future of their operations, such as growing their herds following drought-related downsizing. Today’s announcement is recognition of the importance of beef production in our province.
MBP continues to work with governments, Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation and other commodity groups on the development of timely programs and strategies to help producers deal with the drought’s immediate effects. MBP is also looking ahead at steps that will be needed to assist with recovery when the drought conditions start to subside.
MBP has a number of drought-related resources on its website at www.mbbeef.ca
