Dairy Farm Startup Assistance Program

In 2006, the Fédération des producteurs de lait instituted the Dairy Farm Startup Assistance Program. The purpose of this program is to use quota loans to encourage young people to set up a farm who do not have the opportunity to take over an existing one, so that new dairy operations can start up.

In Quebec, a quantity of 144 kg of butterfat (BF) per day is available annually. The loans are for a minimum of 12 kg of BF per day and a maximum of 16 kg of BF per day.
