Manitoba farmers had a tough year
January 02, 2012

Jan. 2, 2012 - With seemingly never-ending problems, farmers in Manitoba had a rough 2011 and are hoping for a better new year.

In an article from Portage Online, the President of Keystone Agricultural Producers, Doug Chorney, said that the struggles of the previous years were extremely difficult, and if 2012 is more of the same, it will be tough for many farmers to survive it.

"In southwestern Manitoba, there's still a lot of water on the landscape. It's going to take a lot more to solve their problems, and compounding that is the infrastructure problems the municipalities face in rebuilding from all the flood damage," he says.

"But for the producers who did get a chance to get their crops in and harvest a crop, it's certainly been a year they'll be happy with in terms of prices."
