Agriculture committee  Okay. Thank you. The agriculture sector in Canada has been taken for granted for a long time. Maybe it's more important to people in other countries. We're trying to change that. As far as your standards go, in North America we basically run under one standard. We do the same

Agriculture committee  Yes, they are.

Agriculture committee  As far as I know, we're still waiting for the other provinces to jump on board. I think Alberta was the first one out of the gate.

Agriculture committee  It will help with paying when.... We have cattle in my feedlot right now that should have been processed a month ago. They get to a certain weight, and if they can't get marketed, we still have to feed them. I mean, cattle have a shelf life. You still have to keep feeding them. M

Agriculture committee  If I can turn this over to Fawn, she'll be more familiar with the numbers than I am.

Agriculture committee  The set-aside program is designed to help with the feeding of cattle that we have to keep longer. It will go to the people who own the cattle. It's different now than it was during BSE. I'm not sure about JBS, but I know for sure that Cargill does not own any cattle so it will

Agriculture committee  You answered your own question, pretty much.

Agriculture committee  I mean, we would not be averse to donating beef to where it would need to be, but it's the processing side of it. A live cow doesn't do a food bank any good at all. We need to get that animal processed. That's the problem we're having right now. The processing part of it is the b

Agriculture committee  We are too. We aren't ready to give it up. The big monster processing facility, not only in cattle but in every other form of agriculture, leads to efficiencies that enable the price in the grocery store for our food to be pretty reasonable for pretty good stuff. I'll talk about

Agriculture committee  The $50 million is for the set-aside program that is going to help pay for the extra feed. If you take the number of cattle that are backed up there, that $50 million was gone about two weeks ago. It won't last very long.

Agriculture committee  If I heard the question right—it was kind of cutting in and out—were you asking about our international commitments...?

May 8th, 2020Committee meeting

Bob Lowe

Agriculture committee  On the first question, you mentioned the United States. They are supporting their industry in a different way than Canada supports its industry. To my mind, there is a lot more appreciation for agriculture in some other countries than there is in Canada.

Agriculture committee  If I can answer that, there are four provinces on it right now, and it's not a provincial program, so to speak. The federal government does backstop it. The thing about the Maritimes is that they have absolutely nothing for risk management for the beef industry. With this COVID-
