South Peace Feeder Cooperative

Email: spfc@neonet.com
The Feeder Associations Loan Guarantee Program was introduced to help BC beef and sheep producers add more value to their livestock operations by helping them raise their calves or lambs to heavier weights before selling.   The program increases the availability of livestock feeding credit through encouraging the formation of farmer owned cooperatives, called Feeder Associations.   These Associations borrow money from banks or credit unions and purchase cattle or sheep for grassing, or feeding out, on members' farm or feedlot.  The province provides a loan guarantee to the Association's lender.

South Peace BC Bred Heifer Cooperative Association

Email: spfc@neonet.com 
The Bred Heifer Associations Loan Guarantee Program was introduced to help BC beef producers add more value to their livestock operations.  The program increases the availability of livestock breeding credit through encouraging the formation of farmer owned cooperatives, called Bred Heifer Associations.  These Associations borrow money from banks or credit unions and purchase bred heifers to increase the base cow herd on member farms.  Increasing the foundation herd, makes available more feeder calves in the province and adds value to member farms and ranches.  The province provides a loan guarantee to the Association's lender.
