U of M Study To Look At Environmental Footprint Of Canadian Pig Production

The University of Manitoba will be studying the environmental footprint of pig production in Canada.
 
The U of M's Dr. Mario Tenuta will be leading the project.
 
"Our project will be going for four and a half years," he said. "It's funded through Manitoba Pork, Swine Innovation Pork, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada as well. The project is actually Canadian-based, so we will be doing a national survey to get an assessment of what pig production practices look like, and resource use, and production efficiencies right across Canada."
