Sask Wheat supports the retention of cash ticket deferrals

The Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission (Sask Wheat) made a submission to Minister of Finance Bill Mornewau for the consultation process regarding cash purchase ticket deferrals.

Part of Sask Wheat’s mission is to advocate for policy that will contribute to profitable and sustainable wheat production for Saskatchewan producers. Cash ticket deferrals are an important financial tool for Saskatchewan producers and the removal of this program would have a direct impact on the profitability and sustainability of their operations.
