Sask farmers see spring snowfall as mixed blessing

The latest snowfall in southern Saskatchewan is seen as a mixed blessing.

Regina has had a couple of centimeters but some areas have received several inches of snow.

The president of the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association, Garner Deobald of Hodgeville says the moisture is welcome.

He says there is little soil moisture in parts of the southwest and the snow will be beneficial.

He says the wet, cold weather ensures some challenges for spring calving and producers will have to watch their cattle closely.

Deobald says he has received three or four inches of wet snow at his farm at Hodgeville, about 215 kilometers west of Regina.
