Prices farmers received for their commodities fell 15.7 per cent in September 2009 from the same month a year earlier, as both the crops index and the livestock and animal products index declined, according to Statistics Canada.

The prices producers received for livestock and animal products in September were down 10 per cent compared with September 2008. Decreases were recorded for all commodities. Hog and cattle prices have been affected by the U.S. government's mandatory country-of-origin labeling (COOL) legislation, concerns about the H1N1 flu virus and lower demand driven by the economic situation.
