The first drought relief payment of $94 per head should be in the hands of cattle producers soon.
Alberta Beef Producers has been working with the provincial crop insurer to get the drought relief money out as quickly as possible, said general manager Brad Dubeau.
“We’re continuing to work with Agriculture Financial Services Corporation very, very closely,” said Dubeau, adding the organization will hold an online town hall as soon as details on the application process are available.
“We are working as hard as we can to act as fast as we can to get a program that works for as many producers as possible.”
