Every year over 40,000 cattle and horses owned by over 350 producers graze on Manitoba community pastures.


Advantages include:

·                  Great program for younger producers with smaller herds

·                  Animal care provided

·                  Fence repair included

·                  Staffed by experienced riders and managers

·                  Producer-managed


AMCP was fortunate to retain most of the former PFRA employees who have considerable years experience in animal husbandry, sustainable land management and operating community pastures.


AMCP operates the following community pastures: Alonsa, Bield, Birch River, Cote-San Clara, Ellice-Archie, Ethelbert, Gardenton, Langford, Lenswood, Libau, McCreary, Mulvihill, Narcisse, Pansy, Spy Hill-Ellice, Sylvan-Dale, Turtle Mountain, and Wallace.
