CCA Welcomes First Steps to Increased Interprovincial Beef Trade

Calgary, AB – The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) is pleased with the progress made regarding interprovincial beef trade at the meeting of Federal/Provincial/Territorial (FPT) Ministers of Agriculture in Saskatoon.

The creation of pilot projects aimed at expanding inter-provincial trade in meat is an important step in maintaining the competitiveness of the beef business in Canada, especially as the USDA made changes to allow interstate trade of state inspected beef last year.

The CCA hopes the proposed plan leads to more viable options for farmers and ranchers to market their cattle.
