New Swine Course Being Launched in December

A new Swine Production Foundations program is being launched at Assiniboine Community College.

The online and self-directed program provides learners with a broad coverage of the industry from stockmanship, to pig health care, breeding, farrowing, nursery, and grow and finish.

The course will also provide an understanding of swine operations, including regulations, health and safety, record keeping, and barn systems and maintenance. 

Tim Hore, Dean of the Russ Edwards School of Agriculture & Environment says the program will train the next generation of hog farmers and swine technicians to uphold the strong animal care standards the hog sector is responsible for.
