Even if the last few days have brought rain in the Pontiac, many farmers are worried that some people are thinking of selling their animals. This was explained by Denis Dubeau, a farmer from Litchfield.

Despite the sunny weather and the lack of precipitation, the situation is still less important than in 2012, according to Denis Dubeau who was at the time president of the Pontiac section of the UPA. Moreover, the situation in 2012 still has an impact today since, according to Denis Dubeau, at the time several farmers in the Pontiac sold part of their livestock or simply changed their vocation.

A full interview with the president of the Pontiac UPA, Scott Judd, is available here.
