The Government of Canada and the Province of New Brunswick are investing $3.8 million in the province's beef and dairy industries to help accelerate the elimination of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) from New Brunswick's cattle herds. The federal-provincial funding program will help the province's cattle sector comply with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's enhanced feed ban, which takes effect on July 12, 2007. Signing the agreement are federal Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister Chuck Strahl, left, and New Brunswick Agriculture and Aquaculture Minister Ronald Ouellette.
