As concerns regarding a feed shortage continue in Saskatchewan, the province is offering some help to ranchers.
On Tuesday, Environment Minister Herb Cox and Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart announced that 90,000 acres of conservation land would be made available for grazing.
The Fish and Wildlife Development Fund land is located throughout the province consisting of native prairie or other grasslands. Some will require temporary fencing or water. The land will be made available for grazing on a first-come, first-served basis, and some grazing lease feeds that apply to Crown land will apply.
Producers interested in taking advantage of the offer are should contact their local Ministry of Environment office, visit the ministry’s website, or call 1-800-567-4224.
