Members of the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association (SSGA) discussed some of the key issues in the beef industry at their semi-annual meeting earlier today.

“It’s important for producers to meet face-to-face to talk about the issues most important to the beef sector and share their view on solutions,” stated Shane Jahnke, President of the SSGA. He highlighted the SSGA’s activities for the past six months including continuing to lobby the government against the national carbon tax and against federal proposed changes to the corporate taxation. “Both the carbon tax and the proposed changes to corporate taxation would put the beef industry at a competitive disadvantage when it comes to trade,” he added.

Members passed two resolutions in response to the wildfires that took place last fall. “The wildfires were devastating to producers that suffered losses,” Jahnke stated. “The fires illustrated the need for fire insurance for grasslands to be commercially available and if it were available to these producers this program would have been a huge help.” One resolution called on the province and the Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation (SCIC) to incorporate fire insurance into their forage insurance program.
