CCA has mixed response to FPT Ministers’ meeting

Calgary – The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) has a mixed response to the federal, provincial and territorial (FPT) Ministers of Agriculture meeting of last week.

The CCA is pleased to see full support of the Agricultural Market Access Secretariat, pushing the World Trade Organization case against South Korea and the $20 million investment into the new Livestock Traceability Initiative. We also appreciate the Ministers’ willingness to conduct a thorough exploration into price insurance options for cattle producers. This is an issue the CCA has been working hard on over the past months. We asked the federal and provincial governments to commit resources to evaluate opportunities to provide insurance for cattle producers similar to the crop insurance grain producers can access.
