County Council Declares State of Agricultural Disaster

Excessive seasonal rainfall results in overland flooding, damaged fields and considerable impacts to landowner properties.

On Wednesday, August 7, Lac Ste. Anne County Council declared a State of Agricultural Disaster. The volume and frequency of precipitation in 2019 has caused incorrigible damage to the crops within the municipality.

While various degrees of damage exist throughout the region, almost all crop has been affected by current moisture conditions in a negative manner. Current conditions have also created an inability for local producers to harvest livestock feed. High humidity and the inability to access waterlogged fields have severely limited the amount feed harvested to this point, with no forecasted change in sight.

The small inventory of feed that has been harvested has been put up in poor condition with degraded feed value and potential storage issues.

There is increasing desperation among the Farmers and Ranchers within Lac Ste. Anne County as they continue to watch the daily accumulation of rainfall further inhibit the 2019 crop year.
