SARM president is hoping 2022 is better than 2021 for rural Sask

The president of SARM says 2021 was a challenging year for Saskatchewan farmers and rural municipalities.

Ray Orb says widespread drought caused yields to be reduced significantly in many parts of the province.

However, Orb says grain prices remain strong and he is optimistic farming will be better in 2022.

He is hoping for timely rains during the growing season.

He says rural councillors are hoping for improved federal infrastructure funding for roads and rural broadband.

He also wants to see improved food processing to attract more companies and create more jobs in Saskatchewan.
