Farming in British Columbia, Canada Relies on Caterpillar Equipment
Farming in British Columbia occurs in many parts of the province, from the warm interior regions, where wine and fruit are prominent industries to the rich, wet farmland on the south coast where crops such as blueberries and cranberries are important. Aquaculture, specifically for Atlantic salmon, is an important part of British Columbia’s economy as well. Some areas of British Columbia, Canada are also focused on livestock and grain production: for example, the Omineca-Skeena region’s crops include grains, oilseeds, cattle, dairy cattle, hogs, sheep, poultry and eggs, and specialty products like ostrich, according to the provincial government. Farms across the province rely on Caterpillar trucks, excavators, backhoes, loaders, and tractors to haul items such as feed, dirt, snow, and sand, complete projects on the farm, and haul materials across challenging off-road terrain.
