Board of Directors

Verified Beef Production Plus (VBP+) is connecting sustainability and the beef industry in Canada.  Developed by the beef industry in an effort to enhance consumer confidence in Canadian beef.  Cattle operations that are verified with VBP+, prove how Canadian beef is sustainable, safe, and wholesome.  Saskatchewan Verified Beef Production Inc. (Sask VBP) (we changed our name) is an industry-led non-profit organization that oversees the VBP+ program in Saskatchewan.  The Sask VBP Board includes representation from the three provincial cattle associations (Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association – SCA, Saskatchewan Stock Grower’s Association – SSGA, and Saskatchewan Cattle Feeder’s Association – SCFA), as well as Saskatchewan beef producers and beef industry representatives at-large.  The Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture also has representation in a non-voting capacity.
