APAS says farmers faced unusual challenges in 2020


Saskatchewan’s general farm group says 2020 was a uniquely challenging year for farmers across Saskatchewan.

APAS president Todd Lewis says farmers were able to successfully harvest a lot of crop left overwinter in the spring.

He adds the livestock industry faced challenges when covid-19 forced temporary closures of meatpacking plants.

Lewis says there was uncertainty around Covid-19 yet the fall harvest was quite good despite dry weather.

He adds grain movement is booming and grain prices have improved this fall.
