A Beneficial Cost-Share Program for Producers

Veterinary Services Incorporated (VSI) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping qualifying MD residents obtain professional veterinary services at reduced rates. Through this program, VSI establishes strategic alliances with professional veterinarians to provide a variety of services. The fees for these services are then offset by MD funding contributions.

VSI is a Taxable Benefit

If you use upwards of $100.00 through the VSI program, you'll receive a statement of farm support payments each spring. This statement can then be used for tax purposes; taxable at 100% for yourself or your business.

How the Program Works

Any producer of livestock within MD boundaries can participate in the V.S.I. program must enter into a VSI by entering into an agreement with the MD. To enrol, or for more information, please contact the Agricultural Services team.

Schedule "A" 60/40 (Effective January 1, 2021)

Until this Tariff is amended and subject to the terms and conditions of the year 2021 contract, VSI Services (1980) Ltd. will pay the listed VSI fee charged by the veterinarian for the services stated within the PDF below. All other charges levied in association with the service(s) being claimed must be shown on the invoice.
