Equipment Needed For Food Grains Harvest

 
 

PICTURE BUTTE - The annual Picture Butte Food Grains Harvest will take place on Thursday.

 

They need people to help out with combines, swathers, balers, grain trucks and loaders.

 

All the proceeds go to the Canadian Food Grains Bank to help with drought and disaster relief, as well as tools for farmers to grow their own crops, mostly in 3rd world countries.

 

Board Member Tony Kok says they're normally able to raise close to $100,000, which is matched 4 to 1 by the Canadian government.

 

The event will take place at a barley field 4 kilometers north of Picture Butte on Highway 25. The harvest starts at 1pm but there will be coffee/donuts and a BBQ starting at Noon.
