NS Cattle Producers
Working on several initiatives
by Larry Weatherby
    As I write this, we are gearing up for quite a spring. So far we have had a decent spring and, across the province, many farmers have already got a good start on spreading manure, fixing fences, and getting ready for the planting season. The provincial election will be over by the time you read this. The election will have been key for the Nova Scotia Cattle Producers (NSCP) as the focus of our conversation with candidates was on working together to continue to improve production and marketing conditions for our farmers.
