State of Agricultural Disaster Declared in County of Two Hills
County of Two Hills
On July 21, 2021 the County of Two Hills Council unanimously declared a state of Agricultural disaster for the County of Two Hills No. 21. This declaration was made to call attention to the severe drought conditions seen throughout the County.
Although some areas have recently received small amounts of rain, with the lack of moisture in some areas this resulted in little to no hay, silage or pasture. The insignificant rainfall received across the County has left crops decimated. Producers are encouraged to consult AFSC or visit their website for updated information on assistance programs.
The County of Two Hills Council issued this declaration of Agricultural Disaster to encourage the Provincial and Federal Governments to initiate necessary programs that may provide relief to producers. In the past, such relief has varied from income tax deferral programs to Farm Disaster Assistance programs that could assist with such matters as the emergency supply of cattle feed.
