Harvest Completed in Most Areas of Saskatchewan
Mild and dry weather assisted with the 2017 harvest in Saskatchewan this year with most producers wrapping up the process this past week. According to the latest data from the Ministry of Agriculture, 94% of the crop is now in the bin. Most producers with crop remaining in the field have indicated that they only need another week or two of ideal weather to complete harvest. Much of the crop in the last few weeks has come off tough and been placed in aeration bins.
At this point in time, most livestock producers have indicated having adequate supplies of hay, straw, greenfeed and feed grain heading into winter. However, producers in southern regions are reporting that many areas will have inadequate feed and that shortages are likely.
