Livestock Program

Welcome to Manitoba Sustainable Development's Livestock Program

The Manitoba government is proposing changes to the Livestock Manure and Mortalities Management Regulation that will reduce unfair regulatory barriers and streamline requirements that are not necessary to protect the environment.  The changes are expected to help facilitate growth of the livestock industry and its contribution to economic growth and employment opportunities in Manitoba. 

The consultation period from March 29, 2017 to May 12, 2017 on the legislation is now closed
