Getting livestock to where they need to be can be a challenge, particularly when water is involved. This project aims to provide economical and local solutions that can be used throughout the
Peace Watershed. Objectives are both to make livestock handling easier and to improve water quality and flood resiliency.
Improved Livestock Crossing
And they are across! Thanks to First Nature Farms, Agroforestry Woodlot Extension Society, Alberta Conservation Association, County of Grande Prairie and Cows and Fish for the help on this.
Training the livestock to use the crossing. It's a work in progress.
it is great for us and the dog. Now it is time to how the bison like it.
Pilings are in.
Here is where the first crossing will be going in. The span is approximately 30' and will remove the need for the producer to move livestock either through the creek or drive them a long
ways around to the next bridge.
As much as we are excited about working on livestock crossings, we are at least as excited about continuing work with some excellent partners.
