Farmers to shoulder greater risk

The risk will increase five per cent

Share Adjust Comment Print

Farmers will have to shoulder five per cent more risk under the revised rules for AgriCorp-administered risk management programs for cattle, hogs, veal, sheep, grains and oilseeds.

Coverage used to be offered up to 100 per cent.

And this year farmers will have to contact AgriCorp to renew their coverage; no longer will they be able to simply wait for previous-year coverage levels to be rolled over.
