Crop yields are NOT looking good in southern Alberta.
All the hot, dry weather thats hit the region—has reduced yields by about 20-percent this year.
To try and salvage what they can–farmers are actually harvesting already—-quite a few weeks earlier than normal.
Neil Whatley with Alberta Agriculture says the soil is really dry–and its definitely taking its toll.
Rancher Bob Lowe says pastures are burned up as well—so they’re sending their cattle to market early—since the weather has wiped out a second hay harvest.
