Two Manitoba agricultural groups are urging local farmers to consider selling any extra hay or straw this summer.
Both Manitoba Beef Producers and Keystone Agricultural Producers (KAP) say the hot and dry weather has led to far lower yields on feed this year.
KAP president Bill Campbell said Thursday it’s important for producers to know where they’re able to buy feed when they’re running low.
“Given dry conditions reported across much of the province, we feel that it is important to ensure producers know what their options are when it comes to both buying and selling available hay and straw,” he said.
Manitoba Beef Producers president Tom Teichroeb said anyone with extra straw, hay or alternative feed might want to consider listing their products for sale to help out other farmers around the province.
