Sask farm leader says snowfall will help replenish dry soil moisture reserves

Saskatchewan farmers welcome weekend snowfall after nearly two months of little moisture in the grainbelt.

SARM president Ray Orb says the snowfall will help re-fill dried-out livestock water supplies and dug-outs.

He says the southwest has been suffering from extremely dry conditions.

The weather office says the Saskatchewan grainbelt has received 15 to 40 centimeters or more of snow during the past couple days.
