FCC sup­ports cus­tomers im­pacted by wet weather

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Farm News - CON­TRIB­UTED

Farm Credit Canada (FCC) is of­fer­ing sup­port to cus­tomers in parts of the Prairies fac­ing fi­nan­cial hard­ship as a re­sult of wide­spread ex­ces­sive mois­ture that has de­layed har­vest and re­duced the qual­ity of this year’s crop.

Ar­eas in Al­berta, north­ern and cen­tral Saskatchewan have ex­pe­ri­enced sig­nif­i­cant lev­els of pre­cip­i­ta­tion in late Septem­ber and early Oc­to­ber.

“The last days of har­vest nor­mally rep­re­sent a grain farmer’s prof­its for the year, but those im­pacted by weeks of ex­ces­sive mois­ture are work­ing hard to take ad­van­tage of this break in the weather to sal­vage the crops re­main­ing in the field from this year’s grow­ing sea­son,” said Michael Hof­fort, FCC pres­i­dent and CEO. “This is a stress­ful time for those whose in­come has al­ready been re­duced due to un­favourable weather, so we want them to know we are here to help them through any fi­nan­cial hard­ship this mois­ture-de­layed har­vest has cre­ated.”

Al­though cus­tomer sup­port is be­ing of­fered in spe­cific lo­ca­tions, FCC of­fers flex­i­bil­ity to all cus­tomers through chal­leng­ing busi­ness cy­cles and un­pre­dictable cir­cum­stances on a case-by­case ba­sis. FCC will work with cus­tomers to come up with so­lu­tions for their op­er­a­tion.

Cus­tomers in Al­berta, north­ern and cen­tral Saskatchewan are en­cour­aged to con­tact their FCC re­la­tion­ship man­ager or the FCC Cus­tomer Ser­vice Cen­tre at 1-888332-3301 to dis­cuss their in­di­vid­ual sit­u­a­tion and op­tions.
