Name of creator
The Manitoba Cattle Producers Association (MCPA) was established by government legislation in 1978. It replaced the Manitoba Beef Growers Association which had operated for seven years as a unified voice for beef producers. At the time of its conception, the MCPA represented 15,000 beef and dairy cattle producers who marketed cattle in Manitoba. The association was formed to direct a new program of educational advertising and promotion, to conduct research into improvement of cattle production efficiency, and to provide market information to its members.
The collection was donated to the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by the Manitoba Cattle Producers Association in 1991.
