Farming for Health Committee announces a successful 2021 harvest

Many volunteers made the harvest happen
YORKTON - The Farming for Health committee has announced the 2021 crop had a net yield of 29.4 bushels of Nexera canola per acre.

“Given the year and the lack of rain, we consider this to be a very successful result from our harvest,” said Larry Hilworth, Co-chair of the Farming for Health Committee. “I think Al Mitchell, our co-chair, with AgraTactics Agronomy, did a great job planning our crop.” 

“We had great support from the farm machinery dealerships; three combines were provided by Rocky Mountain Equipment, Pattison Ag and Mazer Group. In addition local farmers Glen and Jordan Ford brought a combine and a grain cart and Richard and Sean Ford and Larry Hilworth each brought a combine to help out. As well AVT transport brought two semi’s – it only took us five hours to take the crop off. Once we started we didn’t leave the field, Lakeview Insurance brought out lunch from Mr. Mike’s and Miccar Aerial brought coffee and donuts as we were wrapping up.

"This is a project that all of the participants believe in," said Larry Hilworth. "There is a lot of work to farming this land; the businesses involved set aside their own business to donate time, equipment or product to make this project successful. This project is a success because the people involved care and want to see the project succeed.”

Our thanks to Glen and Jordan Ford for combining and running a grain cart as well as Sean and Richard Ford for running combines. Thanks to the City of Yorkton for donating the land. Bushels of thanks to everyone who helps out: LDC; Corteva, Cargill, Rocky Mountain Equipment, Mazur New Holland, Pattison Agriculture, Al Mitchell Co-chair, Miccar Aerial, Legacy Co-op, Assiniboine Valley Transport, RB Cox Insurance, Synergy Ag, Flaman’s Sales and Larry Hilworth.
