Osad­czuk speaks

Alberta Venture - - The Briefing -

At a stand­ing com­mit­tee in Ot­tawa, Osad­czuk says that 400 head, which are stuck in a feed­lot dur­ing quar­an­tine, are cost­ing him $92,000 per month. “Our bank ac­counts are frozen,” he says. “We’re over­drawn by hun­dreds and hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars for these sizes of op­er­a­tions, and we’re pay­ing in­ter­est on that money daily… We owe the bank hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars, and now we go, ‘Oh hey, we need a cou­ple hun­dred thou­sand dol­lars for feed for some cows that, in the end, are go­ing to die.’”
