Governments of Canada and Manitoba launch e-book celebrating 150 years of agricultural history in Manitoba

The governments of Canada and Manitoba have launched 150 Years of Farming in Manitoba, an e-book developed in partnership with Keystone Agricultural Producers (KAP) that shares the 150-year evolution of the agriculture and agri-food sector in Manitoba, federal Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau and Manitoba Agriculture Minister Derek Johnson announced today.

The e-book highlights the economic, societal and environmental benefits of agriculture in Manitoba, with a particular focus on the innovations of the last 50 years including those related to animal care, crop production, soil research and food safety.

The e-book’s publication today comes on the last day of Manitoba Agriculture’s Farm and Food Awareness Week, an annual occasion for celebrating the province’s diverse, vibrant and sustainable agri-food system. Support for the e-book initiative has been shared between the federal and Manitoba governments using funds through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, developed in partnership with KAP.
