CCA Elects New Board Representatives for 2024-2025

The Canadian Cattle Association completed its 2024 Annual General Meeting on March 21,2024 in Ottawa with a number of events, meetings and election of a new Board of Directors.

The CCA Board heard from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada representatives and were pleased to see that CCA’s partnership lobbying efforts had resulted in the Government of Canada extending the APP interest free loan portion to $250,000 from the initial $100, 000 in 2021 – an announcement that was made on March 25, 2024.

Agriculture Minister, Hon. Lawrence MacAulay joined the Board for a portion of its meeting and took questions from the Members about various topics including trade (science-based rules), Livestock Tax Deferral, and the environment.

CCA hosted a reception at which Minister MacAulay also presented CCA’s TESA (The Environmental Sustainability Award) recipients – Doug & Linda Wray of Irricana, AB – with a certificate and recognition for their environmental efforts.
