The Manitoba Bison Association (MBA) has joined the board of the Manitoba Forage and Grassland Association (MFGA).
"We are excited to have the MBA join MFGA," said Darren Chapman, MFGA chair. "Not only does it continue to promote MFGA as the connector for agriculture, government and conservation groups interested in grasslands and forage crops to work together, having the MBA onside also brings their expertise to the table. It's very exciting times for MFGA to add a valued like-minded partner like MBA to our board."
The other four commodity groups on the board are Manitoba Beef Producers, Manitoba Hay Exporters, Dairy Farmers of Manitoba and the Manitoba Sheep Association.
Manitoba Outstanding Young Farmer winner Brooks White of Borderland Agriculture at Pierson, MB will represent the Manitoba Bison Association on the MFGA Board.
"The Manitoba Bison Association is excited to enter into this new venture with the MFGA ," said White. "I see many opportunities for our organizations to benefit from working together. The prairie grasslands and the bison have a deep history of evolving together in North America and it is only fitting to bring these two groups together."Source : Steinbachonline
