Drought support announced for Saskatchewan livestock producers

Aug 22, 2023

The province of Saskatchewan has announced support for livestock producers impacted by a serious drought situation this year.

At the legislature Monday, Agriculture Minister David Marit confirmed to reporters that the province would make available upwards of $70 million to producers, which is described as helping offset the costs of feeding livestock and to maintain the breeding herd in Saskatchewan.

This relief is being made available in response to ongoing drought conditions in western Saskatchewan. That portion of the province has seen below normal precipitation, and while Marit said there was some hay in areas, it wasn’t nearly enough.
