NEEPAWA, Man. — For a while, there has been talk about the need to modernize the regulations that govern Manitoba’s Agriculture Crown Lands (ACL). In December, the provincial government announced that changes were coming and last month, we found out what a least some of those changes will be.
There are about 1.45 million acres of land that the provincial government rents or leases to individual farmers for grazing or hay production and another 11,000 acres leased for cropping. For some livestock producers, Crown land forms an integral part of their operation. Crown land rental and lease rates are inexpensive, but the use of the land does come with limitations; such as how it can be used and that it must remain accessible to the public.
