Corn North brings feed to drought-stricken Saskatchewan livestock producers

By working with grain companies and railways, the Saskatchewan Stock Growers’ Association plans to bring feed grains to drought-stricken livestock producers in the province.

The Saskatchewan Stock Growers’ Association (SSGA) is working with railways and grain companies to help plug the feed gap in Saskatchewan. 

So far a few companies have signed on to bring corn, dried distillers’ grains (DDGs) or other feed grains from the U.S. The SSGA also encourages producers who are interested in buying feed grain to check with their local grain companies. 

North West Terminals in Unity is currently selling corn. Producers can call Nicole Squires at 306-213-7249 (cell) or 306-228-3735 (office). 

Great Western Commodities is looking to ship corn into southwestern Saskatchewan. For more information, call 306-297-7355. 

Viterra is gauging demand for trainloads of corn and DDGs in Moose Jaw, Swift Current and Saskatoon. Interested producers can call Corey Kosloski at 306-569-4252 or 306-550-7020 (cell). Kosloski can also be reached via email at [email protected]

Lastly, JGL is also looking into shipping feed into Saskatchewan. For more information, contact Glen Lyons at 306-624-2378. 

Grain companies interested in being part of Corn North can contact Chad MacPherson, general manager of the SSGA, at [email protected].
