Manitoba Livestock Cash Advance Program


New: Cattle Producers now have a choice to use Western Livestock Price Insurance Program or Agristability to secure a cash advance taken based on the value of their cattle under the Advance Payments Program.

To allow producers to use Western Livestock Price Insurance (WLPIP) as security, the administrator must be able to ensure the following:

  • The cattle on which the APP advance is based are the same animals for which the WLPIP contract is purchased, which may require on-farm inspections by the APP administrator. 
  • The producer has fully paid their WLPIP premium prior to the issuance of an APP advance.
  • This information can be found on the Statement of Coverage and  Premium which must be provided by the producer or obtained from MASC  (Manitoba) or SCIC (Saskatchewan)
  • The producer maintains continuous WLPIP coverage until the animals on which the APP advance is based are marketed.
  • Where producers make a claim against their WLPIP contract (allowable at any time within 30 days of the contract expiry date) or where the contract expires and the producer has not yet marketed the animals, the producer will be in an overpayment situation
  • To avoid being put into default, the producer must correct the overpayment within 30 days, which could require the purchase of another WLPIP contract. 
  • The producer has signed and submitted an Assignment of Indemnity Form to ensure that the APP administrator receives the proceeds from a WLPIP claim.

Sheep/Lamb producers in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. Goat producers in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia and Bison producers nationally.

Producers must also meet the security requirements.
