Statement from Official Opposition Agriculture Critic Trent Wotherspoon on AgriStability

“The Sask. Party government needs to sign on to fix AgriStability to make the program work for producers in our province

The proposed changes which are supported by Saskatchewan agriculture groups would help fix the damaging cuts made in 2013. The changes would be cost shared 60/40 by the federal and provincial governments and be retroactive for the 2020 year.

Fixing AgriStability is important to producers and farms across Saskatchewan and particularly important to hard hit livestock producers this year. The Sask. Party government needs to step up and support these changes to increase AgriStability payment levels to 80% and remove the reference margin limit.”
