Welcome...

The Saskatchewan Livestock Association (SLA) is a non-profit service organization that was formed in 1975; replacing the former Saskatchewan Livestock Board. From 1975 - 1987 the main activities of the Association were to provide administration for the Saskatchewan Cattle, Horse, Sheep and Swine Breeders’ Association’s; to arrange and coordinate the Annual Livestock Convention (including presentation of honour scrolls); and sales management of the Regina Bull Sale. The Provincial Government provided substantial consulting and financial assistance for administration and approved projects.

 

Since 1988 the SLA has undergone a number of major changes. The Association was forced to become self-sufficient in each of the program areas and to look for new avenues of development. One of the first new programs was a contract with the Federal Government to provide data processing for the Federal/Provincial Record of Performance programs and an Extension contract with the Provincial Government. From that point the SLA evolved into a number of data processing and management programs, as well as providing a much broader range of administration services, along with desktop publishing. The following is a brief outline of the main organizations and programs the SLA is working with in 2019:
