WINNIPEG, Man. — The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) is holding its semi-annual meeting and convention in Winnipeg Aug. 8-9.

The theme of this year’s event is “Our Changing Industry” and speakers will feature emerging issues such as on-farm food safety, animal care and environmental planning.

A state of the industry address will also be delivered by CCA president, Neil Jahnke, and a number of industry awards will be doled out for a producer and feedlot that has gone to great lengths to enhance the environment.

Livestock truckers interested in attending the event will have to shell out $169 for registration before July 30, while producers will pay $95. The fee increases after July 30 to $169 for producers and $199 for non-producers.

The CCA committee meetings will also be held on Aug. 9, with the organization making decisions on topics such as animal health and meat inspection, foreign trade, beef quality and grading and environment and animal care.

“This is the best opportunity to learn about the national and international issues affecting beef cattle producers right here at home,” says convention chairperson, Betty Green.
