The Canadian Cattlemen's Association held their Town Hall meeting this past Sunday in Moose Jaw.
President Dave Solverson says the cattle industry is in good shape right now, though that being said, he adds there's still key issues that need to be addressed such as Country of Origin Labelling.
"We are enjoying good prices right now," he says, "but what we could be getting without country of origin label is quite a bit more. The basis, the difference between our price and the US price has been a pretty wide spread, so we're not stopping on that file."
They updated producers on a number of issues including COOL and Foreign Trade.
"Trade will be a big part," he says, "but we'll also talk about some of the things we're working with the government on in risk management, the expansion of the livestock insurance program to the western provinces, we'll be talking about some of the other actions we have with the government on behalf of the producers."
