Ensure your Livestock is Secure

By

Ensure your livestock is securely corralled at all times.


Length:

Here's a reminder for farmers -- ensure your livestock is securely corralled at all times.

The reminder comes after a collision involving a SUV and a cow on the Bruce Peninsula.

It happened around 5 AM on Wednesday.

The OPP say the two occupants in the vehicle were treated at the scene and the cow was not hurt.

Police also want to remind motorists that its fall harvest season -- and the incidents of animals venturing onto the roads will increase.

You should anticipate animal activity and look far ahead when driving.

Ron Bonnett -- the President of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture -- says  they raised a number of key issues -- including the need for a national food strategy.

Bonnett tells us they also pushed for an effective regional funding delivery model to ensure targeted, appropriate allocation.

Canada's federal, provincial and territorial agriculture ministers started their two-day meeting yesterday.
