CLC ANNUAL General Meeting
June 27, 2018 @ 1pm
Location: CLC (18 km south of Prince Albert along Hwy 2)
We are now a collection point for used grain bags to be recycled. www.simplyag.ca Barry Swanson is the local co-ordinator 306-960-5299. Please call before delivery so proper unloading can occur.
The CLC has purchased a re-furbished Haybuster disc seeder. The CLC continues to increase its capacity with the purchase of a used plot combine. A fanning mill has been set up to assist with cleaning up crop samples. This will greatly reduce the labor involved in cleaning samples. We also have added a disc and harrow to assist with straw management. With the addition of this new equipment and, most importantly, growing relationships with the other AgriARM sites, the CLC continues to increase its ability to provide local producers with information about the most current and up-to-date agronomic practices.
