The Manitoba Beef Producers (MBP) has released its election “asks” – the key policies that we would like to see implemented by the Government of Manitoba after the October 4th election. 

Major Jay Fox, President of the MBP

“The Beef industry matters to every part of Manitoba, including the economy of our towns and cities” stated Major Jay Fox, President of MBP.  “Beef producers should also matter to every candidate and Party running in this provincial election.” 

MBP has designed a series of policy positions that will help drive investment into Manitoba and ensure the economic health of one of our province’s most important sectors: 

  1. Provision of Public Goods;
  2. Water Management;
  3. Strong Science Based Regulations;
  4. Manitoba Cattle Enhancement Council;
  5. Animal Health;
  6. Business Risk Management;
  7. Environmental Initiatives;
  8. Herd Protection; and
  9. Crown Land Management 

“We have prepared a short questionnaire for each party’s leadership that will help them outline their policies in these key areas,” continued Fox.  “On September 26th MBP will be posting, on our website, each party’s reply to the questionnaire.”   

MBP’s full policy platform and our questionnaire for the parties and their candidates are posted on our website at www.MBBEEF.ca
