- Eligible livestock raised in Manitoba, including:

- Commercial market prices are derived from either the CanFax Weekly Summary or a price list (updated as required) that is recommended by Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development.
- Purebred livestock is valued at double the commercial market for animals of the same kind or class.
- Livestock is valued at the time of death or injury, except young livestock, which are valued at a weight that reflects the earliest practical weaning weight.
- Commercial and registered purebred values are limited to a maximum of $ per animal.
- Wildlife compensation is limited to per cent of the value of the loss. (e.g. $ x per cent = $).
