Saskatchewan livestock producers getting support from provincial government

The Saskatchewan Government will make up to $70 million available to help offset extraordinary costs of feeding livestock to maintain the breeding herd in the province.

Producers in some areas are dealing with prolonged drought, particularly in western Saskatchewan. Precipitation has remained well below normal, contributing to a substantial moisture deficit and hindering recovery of pasture and forage ranges.

Provincial funding will be available based on receipts or appropriate documentation for extraordinary expenses for the purchase of feed or transportation of feed or livestock, to provide cash flow to eligible producers impacted by significant drought.

Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister David Marit said the province continues to work with the federal government to jointly examine how AgriRecovery could help respond.
