Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan asks government for a drought-related AgriRecovery assessment
Puddles. The sight of them in fields near Camrose, Alta., pleased Alberta rancher Brad Osadczuk as he drove home from last week’s Alberta Beef Producers meeting in Edmonton.
He hasn’t seen a puddle since last year on his ranch near Jenner, Alta., the western side of a widespread drought affecting southeastern Alberta, most of Saskatchewan and southwestern Manitoba. A late April snow was the last measurable moisture received in Special Area 2 along the Saskatchewan border.
Lack of rainfall this spring has parched the pastures and hay crops that cattle producers rely upon.
