The Manitoba government provides several services to help livestock producers protect animal health and prevent economic losses on the farm. The Animal Health and Welfare branch, led by the Chief Veterinary Officer (CVO), provides several services and programs to protect animals, food and people with the technical support and expertise of the Animal Health and Welfare Team. 

Animal Health and Welfare Team 

The Animal Health and Welfare team works with the public to assess the risks related to emerging animal health and welfare issues. They also collaborate with private veterinarians and industry stakeholders, and participate in provincial and national efforts to advance animal health and welfare issues. The Animal Health and Welfare team engages in veterinary practitioner and producer education and outreach activities to facilitate animal health and welfare improvements in the livestock and poultry industries and to support and strengthen the veterinary infrastructure in Manitoba.
