Payment of Financial Assistance

The calculation of compensation for keeping eligible animals on the farm takes into account:

  • the animal category.
  • the number and weight of eligible animals.
  • the minimum and the maximum number of days to keep the animal on the farm.
  • the maximum cost per day.

Financial assistance is determined by multiplying the number of days to be compensated by the corresponding compensation per animal and may be paid in one or more instalments. The minimum compensation amount is $250 per participant.

his assistance is considered allowable income for AgriStability purposes in calculating the 100% margin for the year, but will not be considered when calculating the reference margin. Moreover, the assistance will not be considered allowable income for calculating Adjusted Net Sales (ANS) under the AgriInvest Program.

Calculating Days to Be Compensated

For large game and slaughter cattle, calculating the number of days to be compensated begins when the holding time for each animal is attained. Eligible animals may then be compensated for a maximum of 63 days from the first day of holding on the farm.

For feeder pigs, calculating the number of days to be compensated begins when the waiting period of 7 days on the farm is reached. Eligible animals may be compensated for a maximum of 23 days in total after the holding time.
