Best of 2017 – Dairy Farming in Canada
From seeding to harvesting, we are always busy on our family dairy farm in Saskatchewan, Canada.
This spring we realized around 800 acres of alfalfa winter-killed, so we grew some oats for hay and peas for silage to supplement this loss. We silaged 220 acres of peas, 700 acres of barley and 150 acres of corn. And combined 600 acres of barley and 900 acres of canola. Even though it was a dry year, we were blessed with very good yields.
We also added some more irrigation, and upgraded to electric pumps at the river.
We do our best to make quality feed for our cows so they stay healthy and provide the best quality milk.
