Western Canadian hog producers can now apply for up to $1 million, with the first $250,000 interest-free, through the Advance Payments Program.
The program is designed to help producers meet short-term financial obligations and covers those who own weaned piglets, feeder pigs, market hogs and breeding stock (gilts, sows and boars). Pigs already sent to slaughter are not eligible.
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s (AAFC) Advance Payments Program, for hogs, is administered by the Manitoba Pork Credit Corporation.
