Welcome to the National Farmers Union – Manitoba (Region 5) website.

We’re excited for the new work going on in Manitoba by the National Farmer Union and its members. We encourage both farmer members and individuals concerned about farm issues to join the NFU. As a grassroots organization we are defined by the abilities of our membership.  In order to create positive change, it takes a village.

Manitoba Agriculture Lands Act Amendments sidelines young Ranchers  

The National Farmers Union in Manitoba has raised concerns about Manitoba’s Bill 35, the Crown Lands Amendment Act, which alters the method of determining rent and awarding leases for crown land pastures. The NFU calls for true and fair consultation on the issue and recommends the addition of a point system to help young ranchers secure access to crown land pasture leases.
