NEWS RELEASE

Sixth Annual BC Beef Day Celebration

May 28, 2015 (Kamloops, B.C.) – BC Cattlemen’s Association is excited to join our industry partners and the BC Government on the lawns of the legislature in Victoria, B.C. today to mark the sixth annual BC Beef Day. This is a day to celebrate the valuable contributions of the B.C. cattle industry to our environment and our economy. It is also a day to engage in dialogue with the BC government about how we can continue to strengthen ranching in B.C.

“We have a lot to celebrate this year with a strong market backing our B.C. ranchers,” says Lary Fossum, BCCA President and Dawson Creek area rancher. “After a decade of downturn in cattle prices, last fall cattle saw those prices turnaround and we are looking forward to a bright and sustainable future for beef production in B.C.”

“Going forward, the beef industry has great potential for growth and we believe the opportunity to grow our beef production is now,” says Kevin Boon, BCCA General Manager. “We need government support to ensure that legislation and red tape do not create unnecessary added costs to ranchers that are in turn passed on to the consumer.”

We are confident that there are significant opportunities to grow the BC beef industry and this success can only be achieved through our continued partnership with government.

BCCA encourages consumers to enjoy a delicious beef meal today with your families and join us in celebrating the beef industry.
