Thu Oct 16, 2014 12:16 PM CDT An excellent weather pattern has fallen into place across Western Canada, allowing harvest to make great strides toward completion.

Thu Sep 18, 2014 11:01 AM CDT Last week's bout of winter weather is history but did damage some crops and pretty much stopped any harvest for a few days. A much improved weather pattern is now in place across the region which should allow farmers to resume harvest at nearly full speed.
