Farmers looking for information about pending changes to the AgriStability and AgriInvest programs will be able to find it at several Central Alberta sessions next month.

Agriculture Financial Services Corporation (AFSC) is conducting the sessions in more than 40 Alberta communities, including Rocky Mountain House on March 7, Ponoka and Three Hills on March 13, Olds and Springbrook on March 14, and Stettler on March 21.

AgriStability and AgriInvest, as well as AgriRecovery and AgriInsurance, are business risk management programs created through the federal-provincial Growing Forward agreement. A new agreement takes effect on April 1, and it will result in a number of changes to AgriStability and AgriInvest.

Brad Klak, president and CEO of AFSC, said farmers should learn about these, and their impact.

“It’s important that they understand the program changes, consider their business needs, and make an informed decision.”

Details about the upcoming information sessions can be found on the AFSC website at www.AFSC.ca. Producers can also call the AFSC office at 1-877-899-AFSC (2372).
