Cattle play a big role in the success of the Anderson farm

KISBEY - Sarah and Jim Anderson, along with their three children, Morgan, 8, Quinn, 6, and Cole, 3, live southeast of Kisbey on a ranch.

The farm formerly was owned by Gerry and Betty Wyatt, who at the time built a sales barn for farmers to sell their purebred cattle.

The Anderson family bought the farm in 2010, and the sales barn was something that intrigued them to continue with the purebred sales.

Sarah was raised in central Alberta, while Jim lived two hours north of Yorkton. Both of them attended Lakeland College, Sarah - for animal science, and Jim - for agricultural production and welding.

They met at college and once school was completed, they wanted to start a life together on a ranch.

Manure produced from pigs is a valuable nutrient source for crops and an important component of the pork industry’s sustainability story. However, manure has a downside. It produces gases that can be harmful to people and pigs as it breaks down.

The four main gases produced from manure are hydrogen sulfide, methane, ammonia and carbon dioxide.1 In high concentrations, each of these gases may be harmful and even cause death. Safety must be a top priority when manure is being handled from a manure pit or lagoon.

Producers and manure handling contractors should review and update their Emergency Action Plan related to pumping, storage, handling and toxic gas exposure.
