Agricorp will consider late applicants

Description (Tag): 


A good percentage, if not all, of these 3,405 registrations were made before the registrants knew how much of their 2011 RMP benefits will be clawed back by AgriStability. Therefore, there's a good chance many livestock farmers will come to regret having made a decision to join RMP for 2012 before they knew the full consequences of having joined for 2011. This clawback is a lesson already cruelly-learned by too many grains farmers, yet it's a lesson obviously not yet learned by the farm organizations which endorse RMP. Stephen Thompson, Clinton ON

It is amazing how some farmers are political party favorite and work for the party expecting personal perks
