Veal producers get official status

The Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission has passed regulations to create a separate organization for veal producers.

It is also changing the beef marketing act to remove veal from his authority.

The new organization, Veal Farmers of Ontario, will have the power to licence producers, to collect fees to fund its operations and to gather information.

It will not have the power to limit production or to take over marketing.
Its powers take effect April 1.
