The Animal Nutrition Association of Canada says livestock producers will need to pay close attention to the cost of feed ingredients this winter and adjust rations accordingly.

With an estimated eight to 12 million acres of cropland left unseeded across the prairies this year due to abnormally wet weather livestock producers are being advised to anticipate shortages of certain feed ingredients, including canola, wheat and barley.
The main competition for feed grains, if the quality is high enough, is the human food market while the ethanol industry will be competing for a lot of the off-grade feedstock.
