Water management and predation were some of the big topics at the Manitoba Beef Producers' AGM.

At the group’s meeting, last Thursday and Friday, members deliberated on more than 20 resolutions concerning the beef industry.

Ben Fox, President of MBP, says they had many different categories of issues to deliberate on.

“The issues with the ravens and magpie birds have been prevalent over the last 3 or 4 years.  The bear-baiting resolution was carried, that’s fairly recent.  Really, it’s asking that any bear-baits set up, are set up using and following the guidelines set out by the organizations that look after hunting and outfitting.”

Now that the AGM has concluded, Ben Fox says MBP will continue to push for the interests of Parkland beef producers within the province.
