News that the Livestock tax deferral area has been expanded in Saskatchewan is good news for individuals dealing with forage shortages that are looking at reducing their herd.

That's just some of the key news for the ag sector.

Another important piece of news was that Premier Scott Moe decided to keep Lyle Stewart in his role as Agriculture Minister.

Saskatchewan Stock Growers President Shane Jhanke is pleased to see Stewart remain in Agriculture.

"I think it great Premier Moe retained minister Stewart in the agricultural portfolio, he's done wonders for our province, he fights on our behalf and he's great to work with on many policies that we bring to him."

The Stock Growers are continuing to look for improvements to forage insurance and work on some sort of a forage-pasture fire insurance program.
