Today, the Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan announced a record-breaking level of payments under the Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation (SCIC) Forage Rainfall Insurance Program.
The Government of Saskatchewan today announced the province is making up to $70 million available to help offset extraordinary costs of feeding livestock to maintain the breeding herd in Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan continues to work quickly with the federal government to jointly examine how AgriRecovery could help respond. Provincial funding will be available based on receipts or appropriate documentation for extraordinary expenses for the purchase of feed or transportation of feed or livestock, to provide cash flow to eligible producers impacted by significant drought.
For 2023, SCIC is doubling the Crop Insurance low yield appraisal threshold. This option is only available for customers who bale, graze or silage their crops (including cereals, pulses, canola and flax).
Today, the federal and provincial governments announced Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation (SCIC) is implementing extraordinary measures to offer support to Saskatchewan livestock producers facing challenges resulting from dry conditions this year, allowing additional acres of low yielding cereal and pulse crops to be diverted to feed. This incentive allows crop producers to make timely decisions to make additional feed available to graze, bale or silage.
