AGRICULTURAL CROWN LAND AUCTIONS TO BEGIN NEXT WEEK



Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development is reminding producers that agricultural Crown land lease auctions will begin next week, Monday, Feb. 8.

Allocating agricultural Crown land leases by way of a public auction is part of the modernization of the Agricultural Crown Lands Program. These leases and permits are available to farmers and ranchers, to provide an additional land base on which to conduct agricultural activities. The Agricultural Crown Lands Program supports the sustainable expansion of the livestock herd in Manitoba, contributes to ecological goods and services, and supports mitigation and adaptation to climate change.

A number of agricultural Crown land parcels will be available to rent for haying, grazing, or cropping. The online auctions will be hosted by Garton’s Auction Service from Feb. 8 to 12, at https://gartonsauction.com/.

More information on the upcoming auctions, including an auction fact sheet, can be found at www.gov.mb.ca/agriculture/land-management/crown-land/leasing-program.html, by contacting the Agricultural Crown Lands Program by email at agcrownlands@gov.mb.ca or by calling 204-867-6550 or 1-844-769-6624 (toll-free).
