MBP GM Says Pastures Starting To Green Up

Manitoba Agriculture says substantial rain over the past few weeks have meant that hay and pastureland is greening up. Livestock producers are intensively managing regrowth areas to support fall grazing.

Carson Callum is general manager of Manitoba Beef Producers (MBP).

"After talking with many of our directors, it seems like those rains helped pasture conditions a great deal. Kind of amazing, some of the regrowth that has happened after that grass went dormant and looked like nothing was there. There's sure a lot more green out there than there was even in the spring from basically what we're hearing from our directors...It's good to see but there's still lots to consider moving into the fall and the impacts for next year."

Callum says despite the rain, dugout levels remain low.
