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.
