Assiniboine Community College announces new swine program

Hog barn workers and other pork industry staff will soon have a pathway for professional development, according to Assiniboine Community College and the Manitoba Pork Council.

The Brandon college has announced that a new Swine Production Foundations program will soon join the catalogue.

Why it matters: Workers will be able to access industry knowledge and education on best practices without the need to take a scheduled, in-person class.

The program was developed in collaboration with the pork council and will include the latest information on health and safety, operating regulations, record keeping and barn systems and maintenance, the college said.
