Canadian Pork Council Requesting Government Help

The Canadian Pork Council says producers across the country now expect to lose $30 to $50 for every hog they sell in 2020, costing farmers across the country $675 million dollars.
“We are asking the government for an emergency payment of $20/hog so that pork producers can continue to pay bills, feed pigs and keep producing food for Canadian families,” said Rick Bergmann, Canadian Pork Council Chair and Manitoba producer. “Without it, family farms will be lost. In turn we will continue to see disruption in the food supply chain, and increased food insecurity as supplies tighten and food becomes even more expensive."
The Canadian Pork Council has been working with government officials to impress upon them the seriousness and the urgency of the situation and are demanding swift action.
