Alta. meat strategy laid out online

Alberta’s agriculture department has gone live with a new website laying out the specifics so far in its livestock and meat strategy.

The website “details the new implementation plan” for the Alberta Livestock and Meat Strategy (ALMS) and “how Alberta will take advantage of opportunities in the global marketplace.”

The site is also intended to provide an update on the province’s traceability plans and the development of an information exchange system, the province said in a release Friday.

“Input from various industry experts is offered through video links, and a multimedia gallery showcases all that Alberta has to offer,” the province said.

ALMS, announced in June last year, is viewed as a partnership between livestock producers, feeders and processors along with the provincial ag department, the Agriculture Finance Services Corp. (AFSC) and ALMS’s administrative body, the Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency (ALMA).

ALMS is viewed as Alberta’s roadmap for “rebuilding the industry, recapturing lost markets and establishing the foundation for further success.”
