Beef: Beef producers’ claims rejected in the wake of All County’s collapse

With the Livestock Financial Protection Board rejecting 15 of 16 claims for compensation, some producers are asking for a more liberal interpretation of the rules


Last year, several Ontario beef producers learned the hard way that they must follow the rules if they want the security of a provincial financial protection program. But do these rules need to be changed to provide coverage for new beef marketing ventures?

Producers stung by the 2009 failure of All County Feed and Grain Ltd. are raising the question after the Ontario Beef Financial Protection Program refused their claims for compensation.
