Sheep Hay Lift 2021

In the spirit of Community and Wildlife conservation, members of the Nelson District Rod & Gun Club, the West Kootenay Big Game Trophy Association, and the Salmo Valley ATV Club, joined forces on October 16, 2021 for the annual stocking of the Sheep Shed situated above the Salmo Creston Highway. A total of 60 bales of hay and 3700 pounds of pellets were transported to the feed site. The hay and pellets will be distributed to the sheep sometime in December through March 31, 2022.

Afterwards, the volunteers were treated to a BBQ lunch and refreshments courtesy of the NDRGC and Glen McKen.

A sincere thank you to Martech Electrical Systems Ltd who, once again, supported this worthwhile project by donating the use of a trailer to pick up the hay bales.
