The provincial and federal governments are helping Ontario beef sector grow with a $2 million dollar investment.
Dufferin Caledon MPP Sylvia Jones welcomed a couple of recent announcements of support.
One provides an opportunity for cost share funding for provincially licensed abattoirs to take on projects to improve food safety, animal welfare, and biosecurity measures at their operations.
The other is an investment of almost $300,000 to help the Beef Farmers of Ontario with marketing efforts in certain emerging markets.
Applications will be accepted until April 30th, 2020 and eligible projects must be completed before the end of the year.
Eligible projects could include capital upgrades for enhanced food safety, improvements in the safe handling and housing of animals, and new equipment for safe animal hides disposal.
