Winter wheat acres have been down across the Prairies in recent years.

That was the message from the Western Winter Wheat Initiative, which hosted a pair of grower events recently.

Ken Gross, agrologist with Ducks Unlimited, says acres in Manitoba topped out at about 600 thousand a few years ago, due to some wet planting conditions in the fall.

He says there was under 200 thousand acres planted in Manitoba this year, noting the crop that was seeded was looking pretty good.


Waterloo regional police say the driver of a truck that flipped on its side, injuring many of the more than 200 pigs it was transporting, has been charged.

Police say they responded to a call of a single-vehicle crash Monday afternoon just west of Kitchener, Ont., in Wilmot Township,

They say the livestock transport truck tipped onto its side while making a left turn.

Fifty-four injured pigs had to be euthanized.

The 24 year old truck driver is charged with careless driving.
