Manitoba livestock producers facing feed shortages this winter following an extremely wet 2010 growing season will receive feed and transportation assistance from the Governments of Canada and Manitoba. The investment was announced today by the federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz and Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives Minister Stan Struthers.

The Canada-Manitoba Feed and Transportation Assistance Program has two components:
• Transportation assistance of up to $0.22 per tonne per loaded mile for producers who must transport feed to livestock or up to $0.10 per head per loaded mile for producers who need to transport breeding animals to feed at distances greater than normally expected due to excess moisture.
• Feed assistance of up to $30 per ton based on an identified forage shortage to help producers who normally grow their own forage to purchase enough feed to sustain their breeding stock.

In addition to providing tax deferrals to eligible producers in designated areas on the sale of breeding livestock, the Government of Canada also provided cattle and hog producers extra time to repay cash advances under the Advance Payment Program (APP).
