The 2021 drought across the prairies resulted in difficult conditions and challenges, particularly for livestock producers in Manitoba. During this time KAP worked with other livestock groups in Manitoba to address the concerns of the livestock industry.
A large concern among livestock producers at this time involved dry dugouts and access to water sources. BMP 503 administered by the Government of Manitoba offered financial assistance to livestock producers for water well drilling.
KAP along with Manitoba Beef Producers, Manitoba Forage and Grassland Association, Manitoba Pork Council, Manitoba Forage Seed Association, and Manitoba Bison Association sent a joint letter to the Minister of Agriculture and Resource Development requesting a one-year deadline extension to BMP 503.
