Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister David Marit has rolled out details of the province’s AgriRecovery response, now referred to as the 2021 Canada-Saskatchewan Drought Response Initiative.

Producers can submit applications for coverage beginning on September 1, 2021.

The initiative will consist of two payments totalling up to $200/head for cattle, with adjustments based on animal unit equivalents for other livestock.  The initial payment will provide producers with $100 per breeding female equivalent in inventory as of August 1, 2021.  Secondary payments will be up to $100 per breeding female equivalent in inventory as of December 31, 2021.

Eligible livestock include Canadian-owned female beef and dairy cattle, bison, elk, sheep, or goats that are bred or intended to be bred. Producers may also qualify for a payment on replacement animals, up to 15 per cent of total number of bred females.

“We are here to support livestock producers during this difficult time,” Marit says in a press release.  “We have worked efficiently to solidify initiative details and understand producers need financial assistance to help offset costs associated with herd management decisions.  We are eager to begin accepting applications for the Initiative on September 1.”

Saskatchewan has committed $119 million for the initiative, in a 60/40 cost share with the federal government under the AgriRecovery program.
