Manitoba Association of Agricultural Societies (MAAS) is pleased to announce 47 host farms/sites are participating this year, 13 of which are new, including two grass fed beef operations –  Mb Beef Forages Initiative and Circle H Farms on the outskirts of Brandon, a forage-only livestock operation and the site of a 2015 tour funded by the federal government’s Commission of Environmental Cooperation (CEC) as part of an agreement with the Manitoba Forage and Grassland Association (MFGA) to implement and promote ranch-level beneficial management practices (BMPs) that improve environmental sustainability of livestock production on ranches and bring concurrent economic and biodiversity benefits. Circle H Farms is also MFGA Board Member Kristelle Harper’s family farm.
