2008 is here, and Canadian producers are looking to the goverments for payment assistance.

Brad Wildeman, Vice President says CCA will continue to encourage federal, provincial and territorial governments to implement further changes to it's Advance Payments Program.

Wildeman says some producers may not be eligible adding every case is different, it depaneds on what your history has been, if you've been in CAIS, how long you've been in CAIS and what sort of reference margins you may have.

With stage one complete of the Action Plan, some producers are eligible to receive 50 per cent of the value of the animals they're borrowing against.
