Winter-like conditions forcing some cattle producers to buy hay

Some cattle producers in Saskatchewan are having to purchase extra hay as the winter-like conditions continue.
Saskatchewan Cattlemen’s Association Chair Rick Toney said it’s a costly process.
“I’m hearing prices of $200 a tonne,” he said.
“That’s going to cut their pocket book, all the extra money they were getting last fall for their calves with those good calf prices, it’s taken the wind right out of those sails,” Toney said.
