I think the same thought was crossing the minds of the PFRA folks at our table this week. Since they actually do good work and are responsible for a great deal of practically applied environmental good I suspect they may be endangered.

so what are some of the immediate impacts for producer's? what happens to those who rely on the community pastures for summer grass? don't know a lot of how they worked etc.

Used it forty years ago to get trees, it was handy and lots of erosion tree rows were planted from the Tree Nursery.

We don't use the PFRA pastures, but 60 pastures in Saskatchewan are/were PFRA. 718 thousand acres of managed grass. It could be a real disaster for the ones that rely on it. Time will tell.

Hubby's niece is a rangeland management specialist for the PFRA. This doesn't look good.

What's it going to take for Western Canadian agriculture to wake up and see just how so called important it is in the eyes of Harper and friends? Why oh why do people vote for them? If you're not a large corporate grain farmer you are nothing. The former government threw the cattle industry under the bus in 2003, and the current ones are backing the bus up so they can run over us one more time for good luck.

Everything's for sale, and who are we to get in the way? :roll: :roll: :roll:

Shelter-belts are getting dozed up here since direct seeding has taken over. Most of the government subsidized trees get used for landscaping around the yard. Why is that a taxpayer priority?

Our local municipalities saw this coming... Our local pasture butts right up against some very aggressive potato growers with deep pockets.

from the local news.....

The Community Pasture Conservation Easement Agreement Initiative undertaken by the rural municipalities of Langford and Lansdowne in Manitoba is the largest conservation easement agreement in Manitoba and the third largest in Canada, according to municipal sources.

Not only does this agreement protect a valuable aquifer running beneath the area’s fragile prairie grassland, it ensures the preservation of the 9,822 acres of natural grasses in the Langford Community Pasture in perpetuity.
