Advanced Payment Program

The Manitoba Pork Credit Corporation (MPCC) administers the Advance Payments Program (APP) for the hog industry in Manitoba. Under the program, eligible producers (who must own the animals covered under the program) are able to receive a cash advance up to a limit of $400,000. The first $100,000 is interest-free, allowing producers to meet short-term financial obligations. The cash advance is available for weaned piglets, feeder pigs and market hogs. Livestock is not eligible once it has been sent for slaughter, and animals that are or were used as breeding stock are not eligible.

Manitoba Pork Credit Corporation operates from the offices of Manitoba Pork, but is a separate entity with its own board of directors.

The Advance Payments Program, administered by MPCC, is made available to Canadian farmers through Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
