Core Funding

 Industry Partners

Prairie Swine Centre is an affiliate of the University of Saskatchewan

Prairie Swine Centre is grateful for the assistance of the George Morris Centre in developing the economics portion of Pork Insight.

Financial support for the Enterprise Model Project and Pork Insight has been provided by:

Core funding for the Research and Technology Transfer Programs at Prairie Swine Centre is provided by pork producer agencies in Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba, as well as Saskatchewan Department of Agriculture and Food. This core funding provides the basic support for the Centre’s research objectives, as well as a Technology Transfer program.

Core funding is multiplied many times over (currently five) by applying for specific project funding from additional funding sources. Project funding comes from both the public sector (eg: ADF, Alberta Agriculture Research Institute, NSERC and USDA) and the private sector (eg: feed and drug companies and equipment manufacturers).

The Contract Research program represents a growing source of funds to the Centre. This program provides professional, confidential research results to agribusiness and commodity groups seeking to develop new products, or refine existing products and conduct research in support of applications to federal regulatory agencies.

Sale of stock is also an important revenue item for the Centre. Animal sales must cover the cost of animal production, and should also provide funds to support the Centre’s Research and Technology Transfer programs. Excess revenues from the sale of stock are also set-aside in an income stabilization fund to support the Centre when market prices weaken.
