Hopeful about hay

Hay along the Yellowhead presages a winter of plenty for Alberta stock.

A severe drought in the province in  2012 caused a severe feed shortage, with serious consequences for herds. Ranchers and dairy farmers were devastated by the lack of winter fodder and healthy animals were put down because there was no feed for them.

This year the summer drought in BC could also affect hay supplies. Let's hope its effects are not too severe.
