SCIC Letter August 10,2017

The Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation (SCIC) is working diligently to ensure producers are receiving accurate information and timely customer service as harvest begins on the 2017 crop. I would like to take this opportunity to highlight key information which may be valuable to your members during the upcoming months.

We recognize there is a significant area of southern Saskatchewan along with other pockets throughout the province that will experience yield losses from the lack of precipitation this growing season. The Crop Insurance Program is in place to help backstop producers who are facing production shortfalls due to the dry conditions. Please be assured our staff and offices are prepared to work with producers to quickly and effectively handle their claims. We have developed a process to expedite claims in the areas where we know crop losses will be significant as a result of the dry conditions. We are also prepared to move adjusters around the province to areas where additional resources are needed to handle the workload.

When producers have completed harvest of their crop we encourage them to contact their local Crop Insurance office as soon as possible to report their production information. The sooner we have the production information the sooner we will be able to calculate claims and get payments in the hands of our customers. If producers have more questions they should contact their local Crop Insurance office or call 1-888-935-0000 or watch our website saskcropinsurance. com for more details.

Sincerely Shawn Jaques

Hunting Season and Fire Awareness

Saskatchewan is experiencing severely dry conditions throughout much of the province. These conditions increase the potential risk of fires.

On August 31,2017 an open fire ban was expanded for Crown land and provincial parks,south of the Churchill River. Several municipalities in the province have also put their own bans in place.

...

A recent grass fire near Glentworth and northern wildfires reinforces the need for diligence by people living, working or enjoying recreational activities across Saskatchewan during these dry conditions.

With hunting season underway, hunters are reminded to take extra precautions.

* Carry a fire extinguisher, shovel, or other tools in your vehicle
* Walk whenever possible
* Avoid unnecessary vehicle idling
* Mufflers and other parts can get hot enough to start a fire
* Keep your vehicle out of tall grass-stick to roads and trails
* When setting up your camp, pick an area free of tall grass

Always be aware of current conditions in advance of any hunting trips, as conditions may continue to get drier in the province. Hunters are reminded to get landowner permission accessing private land.

Many farm leaders are in the ‘baby boomer’ cohort and will be retiring.

Who will take their place?

The ag industry needs younger women and men to step forward, take the torch and help the industry evolve and build a stronger sector. Recent events have demonstrated that not participating in democracy and leaving farmer and rancher concerns to other ‘fringe’ individuals to speak to key decision makers on behalf of producers, will lead to less than stellar, and perhaps counte...rproductive, results.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

If you know of some young women or gents, under that age of 40 years as of Nov. 1, 2017, that is actively involved in farming, and has the capability of potentially being a future farm leader, tell them about the APAS Youth Leadership & Mentorship program (YLMP) or call me.



The 2017-18 YLMP program:
• Runs from November 2017 to August 2018 with most activities being completed by April
• They work with a mentor
• YLMP candidates learning about policy development and advancement
• Candidates attend APAS AGM in Regina
• Candidates also attend Canadian Federation of Agriculture in Ottawa in February
• Youth leaders greatly expand their professional contacts
• They witness and discuss industry issues with farm leaders from across Canada and national and provincial government officials
• They learn about public speaking, conducting a meeting, chairing and other skills required to be an effective leader
• Youth candidates join the Young APAS Producers committee (YAP)
• All expenses are paid by the YLMP.
Attached is a YLMP flyer and program application.



The deadline for applications is October 31.

Thank you for reading this email. If you have any questions, please contact me.

Have a great day.
