Manitoba is home to a vibrant livestock sector that supplies buyers locally, across Canada, and internationally. While many livestock producers are specialized, programs and regulations such as manure and mortality management, premise identification and manifests apply to all species of livestock. Auction marts, commodity exchanges, organic certification and livestock dealer licensing  are marketing options and programming shared by cattle, swine, sheep and other livestock producers. Issues such as emergency planning  and animal welfare  are important to livestock producers of all sizes and regions of the province.
