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.
Concern over COVID-19 has affected the cattle markets along with the general economy. The Livestock Marketers of Saskatchewan is monitoring the situation closely and individual members will be responsible for their own protocols. Please contact them directly for service related details.
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.
This edition includes an update from the LMS President Alan Jackson and office regarding the COVID-19 impact on our industry, as well as a new Board of Directors list, a thank you to outgoing board member John Williamson, and an update from CCA regarding the Cattle Transport Record. Read the full issue 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.
