Agriculture Facts:

The R.M. of Hamiota has the reputation of being one of the most productive agricultural areas in Manitoba.

Newdale clay loam is the predominant soil type; a class 2 soil. There is a small amount of class 4 and class 5 soil in the Southwest corner of the municipality.

The municipality is located in what is generally known as pothole country. Most quarter sections contain 110 to 130 cultivated acres.

The average annual precipitation is about 18 inches; half of that occurring as rainfall during the growing season.

The number of frost-free days averages 95 to 100 days. Wheat, canola and barley are the main crops grown.

Secondary crops include field peas, flax, oats and lentils.

This area has traditionally been a grain producing area. Beef production is by far the predominant livestock enterprise, including both purebred and commercial cow-calf operators. Some producers feed their calves to slaughter weight. The construction of custom feedlot in 1998, (5000 head capacity) provides an opportunity for all area producers to participate in the cattle feeding industry.
