Farmers in Manitoba are being hit hard after another summer of abnormally dry conditions. Forage yields are a fraction of what they should be and dugouts have gone dry. Finding feed to purchase is becoming increasingly difficult as hay and grain reserves are scarce in Manitoba and prices have soared. Livestock farmers are being left no choice but to sell significant portions of their herd.

Most of the Ag Recovery Programs currently in place only benefit large farming corporations. We are calling on the Government of Canada and Province of Manitoba to support smaller scale local livestock, grain, and hay farmers by immediately introducing recovery programs for feed shortages, freight assistance, and compensation for additional wells needing to be drilled.
