Predator Workshops

Posted August 12, 2013

Predators are a growing problem for beef producers in all parts of Manitoba. MBP has worked with governments and other stakeholders to form the Livestock Predation Protection Working Group to help develop different approaches to deal with this issue.

Membership includes Manitoba Beef Producers (Co-Chair), Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship (Co-Chair), Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives; Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Manitoba Trappers Association and the Manitoba Sheep Association.

This fall, the working group will host six predator workshops across Manitoba. The workshops will run from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and will include presentations and demonstrations from the Manitoba Trappers Association.

Also included will be a presentation on the problem predator program and helpful information from Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship. Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation will be on hand to make a presentation and answer questions on compensation for predator damage. Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives will take part in the workshop through presentations and be available for questions.

The Predator Workshops will take place in these locations (6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.):
