Manitoba Agriculture has given livestock producers approval to cut hay and graze animals on Crown land.

The temporary measures are a result of dry conditions in parts of the province. The designated land isn’t normally for agriculture use, but an exception is being made until the fall.

The Agricultural Crown Lands Leasing program will administer the use of available land and provide necessary permits. Livestock must be removed when the naturally existing forage is exhausted or by October 31. Baled hay must be removed by November 15.
