Farmers from across Manitoba met this week in Winnipeg at the Keystone Agricultural Producers 35th annual meeting, calling on their organization to address a wide range of issues that include railway line improvement and maintenance in order to get their commodities to market, funding for veterinary training, and education to keep abreast of updated regulations for safely moving farm equipment on roadways.
“This meeting is an opportunity for farmers to put forward their concerns and recommendations regarding our industry, so that farming can become even more efficient in order to continue providing food for Canadians and others around the world,” said KAP president Bill Campbell.
Campbell, a grains and cattle producer from Minto, was acclaimed president. Jill Verwey, who runs a mixed farming operation near Portage la Prairie, and Mitch Janssens, a grains and oilseeds producer from Boissevain, were acclaimed vice-presidents.
In total, 17 resolutions were passed at the meeting.
