Agriculture Minister David Marit recently announced additional support for the province's producers dealing with wildlife damage.
Marit says producers can receive funding for steps taken to prevent wildlife damage to feed supplies like fencing.
Producers who have received compensation greater than $2,000 per feed storage site may be eligible to receive a fence package to protect their future feed supplies.
SCIC will inform eligible producers of prevention options and work with them to determine the appropriate package.
Once a fence is constructed, a site is no longer eligible for wildlife damage compensation.
Saskatchewan producers are eligible for compensation on damaged crops and livestock caused by wildlife through the Wildlife Damage Compensation Program. Producers should reach out to their local SCIC office by calling 1-888-935-0000 as soon as damage is detected.
