Meetings will discuss Man. commodity group merger

Five commodity groups in Manitoba may soon merge, creating one organization to represent growers of soybeans, pulse crops, corn, flax, wheat, barley and sunflowers.

A steering committee leading the amalgamation released a report Dec. 14, summarizing the proposed merger. They want feedback on the concept and will hold meetings this winter about the structure of the new organization:

• Jan 10 at 1 p.m., St. Jean Farm Days

• Jan. 11 at 1 p.m., Dauphin

• Jan. 12 at 10 a.m., Stonewall

• Jan. 16 at 3 p.m., Brandon Ag Days

The proposal will also be discussed at the Feb. 14-15 Crop Connect conference in Winnipeg
