The CCA welcomes program announcement for Manitoba livestock producers

Calgary, AB – The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) is pleased with the announcement that Manitoba livestock producers affected by the poor 2010 growing season will receive feed and transportation assistance from the governments of Canada and Manitoba.

The Canada-Manitoba Feed and Transportation Assistance Initiative will help livestock producers who are facing feed shortages this winter as a result of the extremely wet conditions in the province this year. The assistance, provided through AgriRecovery, was announced in Winnipeg by Federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz and Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives Minister Stan Struthers.
