Jul 13, 2021

Regina, Saskatchewan – Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada - Today, the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan announced a new beneficial management practice (BMP) for cow-calf producers under the Farm Stewardship Program.

Eligible beef cow-calf producers can now access cost shared funding of up to 75 per cent of project costs, to a maximum payment of $15,000, for the development of preventative run-off control measures. Eligible projects include; holding or retention ponds for collecting run-off, ditches, berms or dykes and earthwork or pen regrading to achieve proper run-off.

The Farm Stewardship Program provides Saskatchewan producers funding to implement BMPs in three priority areas – water quality, climate change and biodiversity. The new BMP will encourage beef producers to implement surface water protection on cow-calf operations.
