Congratulations to the McRae Family on the Recognition of Their Lifetime Commitment to Agriculture!
Well Deserved!This afternoon we're honouring our first BMO Farm Family of 2021! The Mcrae family of Mar Mac Farms!

Mar Mac Farms was established in 1956 by Blair’s parents, Allan and Marg McRae. The McRae family has been farming in the south Brandon district since 1885. Brett and Melissa are the 5th generation on the McRae farm. Lois’s family was also very involved in agriculture. Brett and Melissa are also the 5th generation of longtime registered cattle producers in the Shorthorn, Angus, Hereford, and Simmental breeds. The Gordon family have exhibited steers, bulls, and junior heifers at the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair since 1946.

Type of Farming Operation
Mar Mac Farms is a diverse farming operation, producing numerous crops, along with 200 purebred Red and Black Angus and Simmental cattle.

Family Participation
Mar Mac Farms is operated by Blair, Lois, Brett and Chantel, and Melissa McRae, just south of Brandon, Manitoba.

Land Stewardship
In their livestock enterprise, the McRaes believe in preventative health measures for herd health and practice rotational grazing to extend summer grazing and to conserve moisture. They stay on top of current health protocols and are the first purebred breeders in Manitoba certified to have an Express Verified Bull Sale in 2021. As Verified Beef Plus members and Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef members, they are working to produce a top-quality beef product for consumers. Brett and Chantel use regenerative farm principles in their grain operation, keeping a living root for as long as possible, and poly cropping.

Community Involvement
Blair was a founding member of the Young Canadian Simmental Association. He served as a director of the Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba and on the fundraising committee for the Canada Room Expansion at the Keystone Centre. Blair is also a past president of the Manitoba Simmental Association and recently finished six years on the Canadian Simmental Association. Blair has served on the Roseland South Brandon Community Board.

Lois was a founding member and treasurer of the Canadian Junior Hereford Association. She was a director for the Manitoba Angus Association for 12 years, nominated to serve as President in 2004 and 2005. Lois represented Manitoba for six years on the board of directors of the Canadian Angus Association. She has been Manitoba Angus Association Newsletter co-editor since 2007 and has volunteered her time to serve on the Roseland South Brandon Community Club.

Brett has served on the Manitoba and Canadian Junior Angus Association as National Director and president of the Manitoba Junior Association. He served as the second president of the Canadian Young Cattleman's Council for 2017 and 2018. He represented CYCC in joint policy committee meetings with the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association held in Ottawa. Currently, Brett enjoys speaking at events like the Western Canadian Soil Health and Grazing Convention in Edmonton in 2019. He has been a director of the Roseland South Brandon Community Club.

Melissa served as secretary of the Manitoba Young Canadian Simmental Association and held many offices during her term as a board member of the Manitoba Junior Angus Association. She is currently President of the Manitoba Simmental Association and Secretary for the Roseland South Brandon Community Club.

The whole family has been involved in 4-H, and Blair and Lois started Manitoba Youth Beef Roundup.

Well Deserved!

If you are involved in Any Part of the Food Chain- perhaps this will interest you? I have attended a conference in the past where Brenda was the keynote speaker! She is down to earth and insightful- truly worth your time- guarantee you will learn something from her!!!Join us global friends! Tuesday, 4 May from 10:00-11:00 am PT The Universal Challenges to Food Systems: Canada’s Leadership Role. The diversity in food systems globally is astounding yet regardless of region, state or nation there are shared challenges that perpetuate food insecurity, waste, bias and conflict. Canada is not immune to those challenges. This discussion, with CIC Victoria's very own Brenda Lee Schoepp, will provide startling evidence of our failures but also the opportunities that exist to build a stronger Canadian food economy. Brenda brings a global perspective on food system leadership and she has visited a wide variety of farms and food processing floors around the world. In her decades of independent farming, Brenda developed regenerative practices and served in leadership roles provincially, nationally and internationally in agriculture and agri-food, finance, policy, research and animal health. Her book 'Three Times a Day: Leadership to Feed Our World' will be published in 2021. Brenda was also recently appointed to the Canadian Food Policy Advisory Council which is tasked with co-creating the nation’s first food policy.
