The federal government says new amendments for the cash advance program are now in place.
Access to cash advances is more simplified and the program is more flexible.
New commodities for cash advances include specific classes of breeding cattle, hogs, sheep, and goats intended for market.
Producers can also use more types of security to obtain an advance like private or other types of insurance.
Farmers can access up to 400 thousand dollars from more than 45 commodity groups across Canada.
Each year, over 20 thousand farmers receive 2 billion dollars in cash advances under the program.
