Applications for phase two of the 2021 Canada-Alberta Livestock Feed Assistance AgriRecovery initiative are scheduled to open today and are available from AFSC (Agriculture Financial Services Corporation).

In phase two, producers can apply for additional compensation (a secondary payment) to help cover extraordinary costs over and above the phase one initial payment. Beekeepers are also eligible for phase two.

The secondary payment will be calculated using a feed-need calculation, supplemented by proof of eligible expenses, for all livestock with the exception of bees. Proof of expense, if requested by the initiative’s administration, can be receipts or other supporting documentation.

The payment for bees will compensate beekeepers for up to 70 per cent of the extraordinary costs associated with feed (pollen patties or syrup) required to prepare eligible hives for winter. Maximum amount available is $7.50 per hive/colony. Beekeepers will need to provide proof of expenses, if requested.

If you applied for phase one, you need to complete the application for phase two under the same business name.
