Producer Obligations - Prevention
Crop Damage Prevention
To control and limit wildlife damage, you must implement reasonable prevention measures. These include:
- Contacting SCIC as soon as damage occurs as well as prior to livestock consuming the feed so a yield assessment can be completed
- Monitoring wildlife numbers as claims are based on a combination of wildlife consumption data and crop yield assessments
Producers are expected to implement the predator control measures recommended by the specialist and, in general, to follow good livestock husbandry practices to minimize the potential for predator problems. Failure to fulfill these responsibilities will result in a producer being denied further predator control services or compensation.
To register a claim, contact us. Staff are available from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm to accept claims or answer questions. During busy periods, messages are monitored after business hours and on weekends adjusters are available on short notice to assess damage.
