At the September 12-13, 2020 board meeting, the ALP Board of Directors made the decision to make some changes to the way Alberta Lamb Producers distributes our quartely n'ewesletters. Beginning this new fiscal year, ALP will be printing and mailing hard copies of the Spring and Fall N'ewesletters and switching the Winter and Summer editions to soft copy (online) only.
We encourage all Producers to sign up for our e-communication called N'ewesletter E-Advise, as this email communication will notify you when the new, quarterly n'ewesletter has been uploaded to the ALP website for your reading pleasure!

I am sure you all have heard the saying “crisis builds character,” but I would suggest over this next year we will see that saying go much deeper and I suspect that “crisis will build community.” This past month has been a whirlwind for myself and Alberta Lamb Producers, full of challenging decisions, made in a short period of time, as I am sure it has been for all industry stakeholders. I want to be very clear that we will only get through this together, as Canadian sheep, lamb, wool, and stock producers. Our market always has some unpredictability but this next year is going to be very tough on lamb prices as millions find themselves unemployed with others looking at a decrease in income and limited markets to shop. We do not yet know the full impact on lamb imports or exports or the other meat commodities, which will all factor into the equation moving forward. Either way, we need to be united as a country in every way and face this together.
Producers should be aware that these revised operational measures will not affect our ability to work for you. We will continue to operate our business as usual.
