The market development group representing Canada’s beef cattle seedstock sector has merged into the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association.
The Canadian Beef Breeds Council has joined the Beef Cattle Research Council and Canfax among the divisions of the CCA. The move follows a cost-benefit review by an advisory committee.
The council, formed in 1994, represents 8,000 registered beef cattle breeders, with a mandate to support, promote and represent the Canadian beef cattle seedstock sector.
It doesn’t directly buy or sell genetics or live breeding cattle but works to connect buyers and sellers and to promote beef breeds’ genetic attributes both within Canada and abroad.
