Blue Water Black Calf Producers Association - Bruce County
(Left to right: Huron-Bruce MPP Carol Mitchell; Dan Caesar)
A group of Bruce Peninsula area calf producers took the initiative to create a strategic alliance, the Blue Water Black Calf Producers Association. They came up with a concept that improves animal health and welfare and creates a fresh marketing angle for their product. The Association developed a vaccination protocol for use by a group of smaller producers to enable the production of a uniform herd. As a result, the calves are sought by buyers looking for large uniform lots of healthy animals. This innovation benefits all in the chain - from producer, to sale barn, feedlot and the consumer.
