AMCP is a financially self-sustaining, not-for-profit organization governed by an elected Board of patrons from AMCP Community Pastures. 

Supported by the leadership of the Manitoba Beef Producers and the Manitoba Government, concerned pasture patrons organized the creation of an umbrella organization to manage the Community Pastures after the federal government announced it would discontinue operating community pastures (formerly the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration).   The transition process is complete and AMCP is now operating 19 community pastures as of 2016.


AMCP holds the relevant Crown lease agreements with Manitoba and Saskatchewan and is committed to ensuring that the Community Pastures provide valuable grazing land for local producers as well as protect rare natural prairie ecosystems.
