Yesterday, marked Saskatchewan's Speech from the Throne. 

The speech highlights some key projects that will benefit rural Saskatchewan and the ag sector.

Including the signing of the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership, along with the federal government and all provinces and territories.

Farmers and ranchers are also expected to benefit from the government's plans to continue the expansion of rural internet service by SaskTel.

A new Saskatchewan trade office will be opened in Germany, joining the province's trade offices in eight other countries.

And the creation of a made-in-Saskatchewan carbon offset credit program.

Earlier this month the province announced 5 additional seats at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine to help address the rural vet shortage.
