CCA Semi-Annual Meeting and Convention

Posted July 20, 2015

The eyes of Canada’s cattle industry will be on Winnipeg in August.
The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) along with Manitoba Beef Producers (MBP) is holding its 2015 semi-annual meeting in Winnipeg from August 11-14.
The convention will bring together producers and industry affiliates for networking, information sessions and policy setting.
Along with the business portion of the meeting, those attending will have the chance to tour a local beef operation and the Bruce D. Campbell Farm & Food Discovery Centre.
The event will also feature a uniquely Manitoban evening of entertainment as guests will be treated to a twist on a local tradition, a Manitoba Social. Scheduled for Aug. 13 at Anderson’s Hitch’N Post, the evening will feature a banquet/social and fundraising raffle, with the proceeds being donated equally to the Canadian 4-H Council & 4-H Manitoba. At last year’s event, the most popular items included local artwork and items of local interest, which resulted in significant funds being raised.
The fundraising raffle and social is open for producers, industry and government to attend. Tickets can be purchased by contacting Manitoba Beef Producers at 1-800-772-0458 or info@mbbeef.ca. The event will include a full course meal, a short program, cash bar, and an amazing selection of prizes to be won. Tickets are $40 and must be purchased in advance by July 31.
If you would like to contribute to this event through a social prize, financial donation or a food/drink donation for the tour please contact Esther Reimer at MBP at 1-800-772-0458 or ereimer@mbbeef.ca. All donations will be recognized in the CCA semi-annual publication and on the CCA’s website, and through MBP’s publication Cattle Country and on the MBP Website.
