RealAgriculture Livestock Team: A series of three meetings were jointly held last week led by the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) and Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC). The purpose of the meetings was to discuss grazing livestock and their role in building a sustainable food supply system.
The meetings and consultations were held in preparation for the United Nations Food System Summit this coming fall, which hasn’t been held for 25 years.
Lauren Martin, manager of government and food industry relations for the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association, notes that the summit was conveniently announced before the pandemic, when massive disruptions to the food systems occurred and will need to be discussed and addressed.
