Pasture Transitions in the News

2 Nov

With a new party in the decision-making seat, groups are calling on the federal government to delay the pasture transition.

Saskatchewan Pasture Transfers Should be Delayed: Conservation Groups

“What we want is an assurance of protection for the grasslands,” said Ignatiuk.

“Right now, the transfer agreements are divesting to the province and the patrons associations (will eventually) take them over … but there’s really no long-term assurance that those lands will be protected.”

Ignatiuk said his group has no objection to grazing, a practice that’s compatible with the Nature Saskatchewan’s conservation objectives.

    Has your group made any headway in this fight to maintain the pastures as they now are and always have been? Have any pastures been sold? I support your group and hope you are successful.It sickens me to see our governments selling off our lands especially when they sell to foreign countries.

    Please do not spread my email address around or inundate me with emails.

      What lands have been sold to foreign countries? Which pasture do you use? Don’t think any pastures have been sold. Patron groups have been leasing the pastures back from the Prov Gov. We are running the way the Fed did. Brad Olson Excel Pasture

        I’m not sure Doris will see your questions, but she may have been referring to other lands, not pasture lands, being sold to foreign countries – she referenced “governments” rather than the Saskatchewan government. As you likely know, Saskatchewan still has laws prohibiting foreign ownership of more than ten acres, although there are always rumours about people circumventing the laws.
