  • A Slight Decline
    For 2016/2017, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada forecasts a slight decline in net cash farm income, but it will remain above the 2011-2015 average. The primary driver of declining income is weakness in livestock markets. Crop receipts are expected to increase in both 2016 and 2017, due to strong marketing of canola last year and an overall increase in grain marketings this year, as last year’s large crop works its way through the system. Canada’s net farm income for 2016 is estimated to decline two percent, to $14.8 billion. A decline of seven percent is expected this year. Livestock receipts are expected to decline seven percent in 2016, with another four percent drop expected this year.
