YORKTON, Sask. - Saskatchewan is plowing ahead with a training program to help address labour challenges on the farm.
It has launched an agricultural operator pilot program to give practical, hands-on training to people interested in working on Saskatchewan farms.
The first three courses to be delivered at Parkland Regional College in Yorkton will be seeding, spraying and scouting, and harvest.
The province says more courses will be developed for the livestock industry, including haying, beef cattle reproduction and calving, as well as cattle husbandry and handling.
