March 2014 - November 2015
Audience(s): Cow-Calf Backgrounder Feedlot Project Type(s): Demonstration
Wildlife damage and consumption of livestock feed can be a financial and stressful issue for producers in Saskatchewan. Herds of elk, deer and moose can move into an area and completely eradicate winter feed supplies, leaving producers scrambling to find feed for their livestock. As wildlife pressure becomes heavier in many areas of our watershed, local producers are looking for solutions to this ever-increasing problem while still respecting biodiversity.
The project did find that there was some deterrence when the wildlife approached the fence, especially if they saw the fence before continuing.
Goal #3: Enhance ecosystem services and biodiversity on lands managed by beef producers
Goal #9:Increase the financial viability of beef production in Canada
