Members of HCBC Staff, Board of Directors and Representatives from BC Equine Associations came together to attend the BC Agriculture Council’s Ag Day in Victoria on November 7th. Ag Day is a series of scheduled meetings between BC Farmers, Ranchers and Industry Professionals with Cabinet Ministers, MLAs, senior government officials and other key stakeholders such as BC’s Agriculture Land Commission (ALC). These meetings are to discuss key issues and the sustainable growth of Agriculture in BC. Horse Council BC brought the voice for equines in BC Agriculture, and these meetings serve as a great platform to bring forward the issues we face in the equine industry to members of government.
