While many outside the drought-affected regions of Canada are working at moving Hay West, there is a group on Canada’s east coast that is organizing to bring Cows East.
The group, led by the New Brunswick Cattle Producers, is looking to attract young cows and heifers to the east, saying that it makes more sense to bring livestock to the feed, than feed to the herd.
Organizers say it could be that producers are willing to buy cattle, but some are open to leases or boarding situations in an effort to preserve maternal lines.
The Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association is sharing the information to facilitate a Cows East initiative. Producers interested in exploring opportunities to sell or custom feed livestock are encouraged to contact the organizers of Cows East by filling out the form here.
