APAS Passes Key Resolutions At AGM

The Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan held their AGM last week.

During the meeting, the group passed a total of 26 resolutions, including calling on the provincial government to reject the Saskatchewan Growth Coalition’s proposed Effective Mill Rate Ratio of 0.75 – 2.0, expressing
disappointment with both levels of government on their decision not to allow zero-tillage offset protocols for prairie producers and to advocate further for the recognition of producer achievements in sequestering carbon through farming practices.

APAS President Ian Boxall says the resolutions give APAS a good sense of direction for the year ahead.

“This ensures producers will have their voices heard as we lobby various levels of government to ensure these resolutions are acted upon.”
