The second Western Canadian Cow-Calf Survey will occur in Fall/Winter 2017/18. Look for the survey being handed out at District meetings coordinated by your provincial producer associations starting October 2017 and at winter workshops. Producers who complete 80% of the questions are eligible for a $25 gift card, plus complete the cost of production section of the survey to receive an additional $25 gift card.

Watch for the survey being handed out at meetings starting in October 2017! For links to the online and paper surveys and to learn more, visit this page on the Western Beef Development Centre website.

 Forage Programs and Funding Opportunities

The Alus Saskatchewan Assiniboine Project is offering payment for producers to convert marginal land to forages, conserve wetlands and sloughs, conserve native plants, and to install hen houses or bat boxes within the Assiniboine River Watershed.

To learn more, click here or go to the Assiniboine Watershed Stewardship Association website.

Ducks Unlimited Canada has teamed up with Crop Production Services to offer incentives to producers in targeted areas.  To learn more about this program click here.

Ducks Unlimited also offers a Marginal Areas Program aimed at grain producers to seed fragments of cultivation into forage and a Forages in Rotation program for landowners wishing to add forages as part of an annual cropping rotation. Contact DU for more info.
