Manitoba Cattle Enhancement Council
The Manitoba Cattle Enhancement Council (the “Council”) has been established by the Province of Manitoba to implement a plan to:
- Initiate, promote, support conduct and manage research and programs, including research or programs relating to financing or processing, that enhance value-added marketing activities relating to cattle;
- Gather, compile and distribute information related to the cattle industry.
The mandate of the Council is to expand the beef processing industry in the Province, with the involvement of producers. The Council will administer an investment fund capitalized through a cattle levy and matching government contributions, which will be used to finance new or expanding slaughter/processing facilities in the Province. The Council will also undertake such activities that will assist in the overall expansion of the beef processing industry.
