Hay along highways in Saskatchewan is available for free salvage by farmers and ranchers. Producers may recover hay anytime during the spring or summer months, with landowners or lessees nearest/adjacent to the ditch having the first option to cut or bale this material prior to July 8.  After that date, anyone may cut and bale the hay without permission from the nearby landowner, provided salvage operations haven’t been initiated.

The hay must be cut at a uniform height, leaving a neat appearance and bales of hay must be placed no less than eight metres away from the shoulder of the highway. Bales must be removed by Aug. 8 and if any are left after that date, in a location deemed to be hazardous to motorists, they may be removed by the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure.
