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:
