While rain continued to dampen much of Saskatchewan in the last week, periods of dry weather in the Prince Albert and northeast areas helped the region make the most progress in the province, according to this week’s provincial crop report.
Dryer weather in the south in recent days has improved harvest progress across the province, bringing 2016 in line with the five-year average. Despite the wet conditions, producers in the Prince Albert region are still making gains.

Livestock producers have certainly been making hay so far this season.
According to Saskatchewan Agriculture's latest crop report, 50 per cent of the hay crop has been baled already or put in to silage so far this season, with another 20 per cent cut and ready for bailing.
