  • Press release: Provincial Farm Organization Applauds Government Commitment to Promote Local Food, but Expresses Concern over Future Supply of Clean Water | National Farmers Union in New Brunswick
    NFU in NB applaud this initiative by our government to strengthen local food production and this public commitment to promote local community food products to residents visitors and businesses Our farm members look forward to the opportunity to work with the Premier Minister Olscamp and the DAAF staff to implement these promises However Chiasson also points out that farmers rely on safe and abundant water to produce high quality food for public consumption In light of the government s decision to proceed with development of the shale gas sector in the province an industry which has been reported to have potential negative impacts on safe ground water supply Chiasson expressed concern At their 2012 Annual General Meeting members of the NFU in NB passed a resolution recommending that a cost benefit analysis be done by an objective third party before exploration for shale gas be permitted in the province NFU in NB Executive Director Melanie Jellett indicated that that the requested analysis should include the impact upon water and air quality road infrastructure property devaluation and consequent property taxes tourism forestry and agriculture Chiasson said members of the NFU in NB believe that the government s expressed intention to proceed with development of an extractive industry such as shale gas runs counter to an investment in healthy communities and sustainable agriculture since crop and livestock production depend heavily upon readily available clean water supplies The National Farmers Union in New Brunswick is one of two accredited general farm organizations in NB The NFU has represented farm families in all agricultural commodities across Canada for over forty years Its members work together to achieve farm policies which will ensure dignity and security of income for farmers while enhancing the land for future generations For more information contact us by email info

    over 80 of Canada s beef processing The National Farmers Union is calling upon the Canadian government to review this takeover to protect the interests of small and medium sized Canadian businesses in the beef sector and protect Canada s sovereignty over our food system The fear of collapsing prices for cattle and of the 2 000 jobs that could be lost and the impact that would have on Brooks pale in comparison to what it would mean for Canada to lose control of her cattle slaughter capacity said Neil Peacock cattle farmer and NFU Board member from Sexsmith Alberta The JBS take over is not a silver bullet that will solve the problems in the beef industry What we need is a major overhaul of federal meat policy to restrain packer power by reversing concentration and decoupling vertically integrated packers We need to tailor food safety regulations to encourage local abattoirs that could serve markets in every region And finally we need to build collective cattle marketing agencies that will ensure an efficient fair and transparent market for both buyers and sellers JBS already controls more than a third of the US beef market and would have controlled more if the threat of an antitrust lawsuit had not stopped its plans to buy out National Beef Packing in 2009 noted Terry Boehm National Farmers Union President JBS has been consolidating its operations into fewer and larger plants in every country where it operates It has bought up and then closed down feedlots and packing plants which pushes cattle prices down and increases the company s global profits Boehm concluded Letting this company take over such a large proportion of Canada s beef processing industry hot on the heels of allowing our largest grain company Viterra to be sold to
