The Government of Yukon has released the Local Food Strategy for Yukon: Encouraging the Production and Consumption of Yukon-Grown Food 2016–2021.
The results of the consultation with neighbouring land owners of the proposed agriculture land release is now available.
The Yukon government has established an Elk/Agriculture Conflict Hunt in response to concerns from Takhini River area farmers over crop damage caused by elk. The government’s goal is to train elk to avoid agricultural properties through aversive conditioning, consistent with the draft elk management plan.
The Veterinary Services Program reimburses participating veterinarians up to $1,000 per farm to cover costs associated with their travel and professional service fees.
