The Saskatchewan government has announced supplemental Disaster aid for farmers who suffered significant losses from recent spring storms.
The support will help producers who lost livestock in April snow storms and did not qualify under original disaster assistance.
The exective director of the provincial disaster aid program Noel McAvena, says the new program assists those with more than 2 million dollars in gross revenues.
In Saskatchewan, he says it is reasonable for a family run farming operation to exceed this threshold in gross annual revenues, but not have the capacity to recover without government assistance.
He says the program pays 95 percent of market price for livestock killed in April storms.
