Promoting competitive bidding in the marketing of livestock
The Livestock Marketers of Saskatchewan is actively involved in addressing issues affecting members of our industry, such as traceability, brand inspection, dealer licencing/bonding, labour training, worker safety protocol,
animal handling/welfare protocols and CFIA requirements.
LMS has been supporting Saskatchewan's livestock auction markets and order buyers since 1972 when we were founded as the Saskatchewan Livestock Markets Association. A lot has changed since then but not our commitment to our members. Here is a review of our activities over the last 10 years.
LMS focused much of our efforts in 2019 on the development of a new CattleSafe Saskatchewan program. The goal of this project is to empower employers of livestock handling facilities with a comprehensive and tailored health and safety manual to reduce workplace incidences and help prove due diligence. Read more about our 2019 activities here.
'Safe Handling Practices for Market Centre Staff' is a one of a kind training manual and accompanying DVD geared towards employees who handle livestock in a market setting. Whether as an educational tool for new staff or a refresher for seasoned professionals, this training manual is a valuable asset for owners and operators alike. Get your copy here.
Our board is made up of 10 dedicated volunteers from Saskatchewan livestock marketing industry. Meet them here.
Livestock Services of Saskatchewan (LSS) facilitates the delivery of livestock brand inspection services, manages the brand registry, and administers the licensing of livestock dealers in Saskatchewan.
LMS strives to increase value to the beef industry and we do this through collaborations with other industry stakeholders such as the Saskatchewan Cattlemen's Association.
