In Saskatchewan, the recent sunshine has finally given farmers a chance to make some good progress.
Crops Extension Specialist Sara Tetland gave a rundown on the numbers in last week's crop report but says with the nicer weather she expects to see a jump in numbers this week.
"Currently, producers have 26 per cent of the hay crop cut and 49 per cent baled or put into silage. When we look at the hay quality coming off it's currently rated as seven per cent excellent, 68 per cent good, 20 per cent fair and five per cent poor."
She notes a lot of farmers are still taking their first hay cut and report yields are below average, especially in areas that received less rainfall in the spring.Click here to see more...
