The governments of Canada and Saskatchewan have announced a new beneficial management practice program for cow-calf producers under the Farm Stewardship Program.

Eligible cow-calf producers can now access cost-shared funding of up to 75 per cent of project costs, to a maximum of $15,000 for the development of 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.

“I feel for the many Saskatchewan producers dealing with moderate to extreme drought conditions across much of the province this year,” says Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Marie-Claude Bibeau. “Together with our provincial counterparts, we are working to build a sustainable future for our farm families, because we know farmers are on the front lines of climate change.  Producers can now access this program which will help them to protect their valuable water sources and support their adoption of sustainable management practices.”

Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister David Marit says that as stewards of the land, producers take their responsibility to protect water sources seriously. “This program will provide additional funding for Saskatchewan cow-calf producers and assist them with making improvements to their operations.”
