Manitoba Beef and Forages Initiatives (MBFI) is a 2017 Co-op Community Spaces Recipient and will receive $125,000 in funding provided by Co-op Community Spaces.
“This is just wonderful news,” says Ramona Blyth, MBFI chair. “MBFI is a centre of agricultural innovation engaging in science-based research to benefit valuable ecosystems, improve producer profitability and build social awareness around the beef and forage industry.”
Blyth says that the four core partners of the MBFI: Manitoba Agriculture, Manitoba Beef Producers, Ducks Unlimited Canada and Manitoba Forage and Grasslands Association were extremely pleased by the generous funding.
“MBFI supports a community of stakeholders, collaborating for the advancement of agriculture’s future, and connecting with the next generation around food production and public trust at our three research sites in the Brandon, MB area,” says Blyth. “We are really looking forward to working with the great people at Co-op Community Spaces and celebrating this great news in much more detail in the very near future.”
