MLCA is happy to offer advances on a select number of Crops for Manitoba and Saskatchewan, as well as your Livestock. Please see the rate page for commodities and prices!

Manitoba Livestock Cash Advance was established in 2007 to administer the ADVANCE PAYMENTS PROGRAM (APP) for Cattle producers in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Sheep/Lamb producers in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. Goat producers in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia and Bison producers nationally. 

The Advance Payments Program (APP) is a federal loan guarantee program that helps producers meet their financial obligations and benefit from the best market conditions by improving their cash flow throughout the production period.

To be eligible producers must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. A corporation, cooperative, or partnership of which the majority interest is held by Canadian citizens or permanent residents.

Producers must also meet the security requirements.

Producers can access cash advances of up to $400,000.00, with the first $100,000.00 of the cash advances being interest free. 

Administration fee of $250.00 per application, $75.00 for subsequent advances.
