Ontario Pig Health Check-Up Program Launched

The Ontario Pig Health Check-up program is new open and will provide funding to support veterinary consultations for small scale pig herd owners. Good animal health practices are key tools to prevent the introduction, development and spread of transmissible animal diseases.

The spread of African swine fever (ASF) in Europe, Asia and more recently in the Caribbean is a particular concern to the Ontario and North American pork industry. While large commercial pork producers and swine veterinarians are well aware of the potential risk to our swine herd if the disease should enter Canada, there may be gaps in resources for owners of small pig herds, homesteaders, animal sanctuaries, and pet pig owners. As well, some may not have an established relationship with a veterinarian.  We hope this program will facilitate that connection. Visit www.ontariopighealth.ca for more information. The program runs until October 31, 2022.

Thursday, August 11, 2022

Chad Bierman, PhD, Geneticist, Genesus Inc. Profitability for swine producers has traditionally focused on lowering cost, improving efficiency, or increasing value.
