This workshop was organized to address the need for producers to develop business plans to access the Hog Industry Loan Loss Reserve Program (HILLRP). Not only will producers require a viable business plan, but some financial institutions are also requesting your cost of production along with your cash flow over the short and long term. The Oxford County Pork Producers Association at their October board meeting felt it was necessary to host a workshop specifically for pork producers. Space is limited to a maximum of 30 participants. Lunch will be provided.

Do you want to access the Hog Industry Loan Loss Reserve Program but haven’t started your business plan?

Will you have trouble affording the fee for someone else or don’t have time to do your business plan?

Are you unsure whether you should take the loan or the transition funding?

Do you want other options that allow for diversification?

Are you having difficulty as a family agreeing to a short and long term plan?

Then access the Farm Financial Assessment ….

There are two ways to do this:

The Government of Canada launches research fund to help prevent and divert food waste from Canadian landfills

When food and other organic wastes are disposed of in landfills, they produce methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. Municipal solid waste landfills are responsible for almost one-quarter of Canada's methane emissions, which are generated when biodegradable waste decomposes. Cutting methane emissions from all sources, including landfills, is one of the fastest and most cost-effective ways to combat climate change. Today, the Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, announced the Food Waste Prevention and Diversion: Research and Capacity Building Fund.
