The Manitoba Farm Animal Council has a number of projects on the go.

Executive Director Shanyn Silinski notes one is the re-development of their website.

It's being updated to come in-line with the information contained on the websites of M-FAC's sister councils in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Ontario.

Silinski adds they are also looking at hosting a number of different workshops including several on winter feeding.

Plus, the Council's livestock emergency responders forum will move to Western Manitoba next year.

The event focuses on training emergency personnel on how to effectively deal with an accident or fire which involves livestock.

The Manitoba Farm Animal Council's mandate is to promote animal welfare and animal agriculture in our province.
