Government support for cattle producers suffering due to excess moisture is still in the works according to Manitoba Cattle Producers Association president Jay Fox.

Fox says Provincial Agriculture Minister Stan Struthers received approval on a support package in late August or early September.

The programming is now pending approval in Ottawa.

Details are not known.

The MCPA estimates up to a third of Manitoba cattle producers are short on feed as a result of above-average rainfall.
