Roadside Haying

Roadside Haying (2)

Red Deer County residents who wish to harvest hay from County roadsides must submit a request form to the Agriculture Services department by May 15 each year. Please note that grazing is not permitted in Red Deer County roadsides. Red Deer County annually controls roadside vegetation through mowing, brushing, and herbicide application. These programs start in mid-May, and continue until freeze up in the fall. The only way to ensure that programs don’t interfere with plans to hay the roadside right-of-way is to complete and submit the haying request form. This allows the Agriculture Services department time to map these request areas, and avoid applying herbicide or mowing these areas before they can be hayed. The request form can be found at www.rdcounty.ca and can be faxed to 403.346.9840 attn: Agricultural Services, delivered in person at the County Centre, or emailed to agriculture@rdcounty.ca.

- The hay harvested must be for the Red Deer County residents’ personal use only.
- Roadside Haying Request forms must be received by Agriculture Services by May 15; a new request is required each year (late request forms can be discussed).
- The cutting and removal of bales must be completed by August 1 of the request year (alternative options can be discussed).
- Prohibited-Noxious and Noxious weed control in the haying permit area is the responsibility of the permit holder for the duration of the request.
- The permit holder must supply evidence of general liability insurance coverage of not less than $2 million per incident.

Note: Red Deer County does not issue haying permits for primary and secondary highway right-of-ways; please refer to Alberta Transportation - Cutting Hay requirements.

To discuss options and submit a request form, contact Ag Services at 403.342.8654 or agriculture@rdcounty.ca.
