The Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association welcomes the Brad Wall government’s promise for matching donations for wildfire relief in western Saskatchewan.
So far, the Stock Growers have raised over 65-thousand-dollars, and the Wall government is promising to match the donation to a maximum of 100 thousand dollars.
Stock Growers manager Chad MacPherson said the extra funds will be put to good use.
“We’re very appreciative of this announcement made today, it’s a step in the right direction and will help producers recover and get back on their feet after the recent wildfire events,” he said.
More than a million dollars worth of cattle, pasture and cropland were destroyed in wildfires last month in southwest and western Saskatchewan.
