Assessing coverage for each unique farm business
With application and renewal deadlines approaching for government risk management programs, it's a good time for producers to assess their coverage and make sure it meets the needs of their farm business. Every farm is unique and every farmer has their own story, with their own risks and plans to manage those risks. This is the story of one such Ontario farming family.
At this time of year, farmers should look at their own stories and ask themselves:
"What risks does my business face?"
"Which programs would best help me manage these risks?"
*The Smiths are a fictitious family based on common characteristics of real farm businesses that participate in business risk management programs offered by the government.
