The Wall government is reminding livestock producers about 90-thousand acres of Crown land which are available for grazing this summer.
The land has been made available to help producers avoid feed shortages due to dry weather.
Environment minister Scott Moe says the 90-thousand acres of Fish and Wildlife Development Fund lands is spread across the province, and, is available until September 15th.
APAS president Todd Lewis says the cattle herd is under stress in many areas due to dry weather:
“So, anything the province can do to help open these provincial lands is appreciated,” Lewis said. “Some guys can go and get some grazing time – it’s important for the people that need it.”
To date, 23 Saskatchewan producers in 18 different rural municipalities have grazing agreements on Fish and Wildlife Development fund lands.
