Under the theme “Uniting for Growth”, the Quebec Cattle Producers’ Annual General Meeting was held on April 6th and 7th. More than 180 cattle producers, industry stakeholders and representatives from various levels of government attended the meeting. The delegates approved the name change of the Fédération des producteurs de bovins du Québec (Quebec Cattle Producers Federation). From now on, the Federation will be called Les Producteurs de bovins du Québec (Quebec Cattle Producers).

During the meeting, 22 resolutions were adopted. A summary of the ten resolutions adopted at the plenary session will soon be available on the new website www.bovin.qc.ca, which facilitates browsing and better informs producers. Here is the guide for simple and quick browsing
