We take great pride in being stewards of the land. Protecting our resources for the next generation is very important for us. That's why we work closely with our local Conservation District to make sound business decisions that protect the ecosystem and ensure long term environmental sustainability. We also voluntarily participate in other industry initiatives such as: Manitoba Manure Management Plan (MMP), The Environmental Farm Plan (EFP), Verified Beef Production (VBP). Holistic Management also plays a big role in our day to day decisions and operations.
