Administrative history

The Manitoba Cattle Producers Association (MCPA) was established by government legislation in 1978. It replaced the Manitoba Beef Growers Association which had operated for seven years as a unified voice for beef producers. At the time of its conception, the MCPA represented 15,000 beef and dairy cattle producers who marketed cattle in Manitoba. The association was formed to direct a new program of educational advertising and promotion, to conduct research into improvement of cattle production efficiency, and to provide market information to its members.

Custodial history

The fonds was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by the Manitoba Cattle Producers Association in four separate accruals between 1991 and 1999.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of the Manitoba Cattle Producers Association's records, in its many different incarnations, and other related material dating as far back as 1924. The records consist of correspondence, memorandums, news releases, committee minutes and agendas, reports, directories and membership lists, journals and articles, surveys and results, handbooks, pamphlets, regulations, symposium proceedings, resolutions, by-laws, commissions and acts, newsletters, speeches, financial records, taxation records, promotional correspondence, and policies and records of affiliated associations and government agencies. In addition to these textual records, the collection also contains photographs, videotapes, a filmstrip, and computer diskettes.
