NEW Bob Calf Weighing Systems Initiative

Maximize the value of bull calves destined for the veal market – NB dairy producers are now eligible to receive 50% coverage, up to $700.00 towards the purchase of scales to weigh young calves. This initiative aims to encourage the use of animal weighing systems to help monitor and improve the size of young calves being marketed for veal. This initiative is made possible through the Canada-New Brunswick Agriculture Futures Initiative. Due to limited funding only a limited number of scale applications can be approved. Project approval will be considered on a first come, first served basis until the application deadline of December 20, 2013, or until funding has been exhausted.
