Cow stimulus

Federal government pays $6 million for steak.

Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz announced the funds Tuesday for a sector he says has been through a “tough year” because of the recession.

“We know that the economy has taken its toll on meat consumption, so we’ve stepped up to the plate.”

The money goes to research on reducing production costs, increasing feed efficiency and tackling animal health. Agriculture Canada also said the research money will be used to help increase demand for beef domestically and globally.
