Helping Beef & Cattle Producers

A herd of cattle in a field

We’ve been helping producers through highs and lows for over 80 years.

Support to maintain your herd

Drought conditions and high prices have led to reduced cow numbers and a higher number of heifers on feed. We understand the challenges facing cattle producers today and we’re here to help with interest only loan solutions to maintain the working capital needed to keep bred cattle in Alberta.

Flexibility in Herd Financing

In response to market conditions and client needs, ATB has created short term provisions in financing to specifically assist beef producers in managing, maintaining, and growing their herd size.

Subject to approval, ATB will offer beef and cattle producers the flexibility of;

  • Interest only on a new loan for up to two years on all bred heifers and bred cows purchased after September 1, 2023.
  • An available amortization up to five additional years.
  • Ability to pay back any principal amount without penalty prior to the start of the amortization period.

This program will not be limited to one type of breeding animal, instead it will allow producers to make their own business decisions about which type of breeding animals will best suit their specific situation.

Producers are encouraged to contact their ATB Ag specialized Relationship Manager for full loan details, or reach out to us here.
