Cervid stimulus

Federal government to spend over one-million dollars helping elk and deer ranchers globalize.

The Harper government is spending more than one-million dollars to help struggling elk and deer ranchers gain access to international markets.

Some markets for antler velvet and elk and deer meat have been restricted because of chronic wasting disease.

The disease, similar to mad cow disease, has been found in Saskatchewan and Alberta.

The federal cash will help the cervid industry develop an animal traceability and food safety program that would meet Canadian Food Inspection Agency guidelines.
