National Sow Housing Conversion Project

Posted in: Pork Insight Articles, Prairie Swine Centre by Ken Engele on May 1, 2018

The National Sow Housing Conversion Project (NSHCP) is a descriptive project intended to facilitate the successful conversion of Canada’s sow barns to group housing. The project involves collaboration from industry participants and academic researchers across Canada working together on a comprehensive strategy involving demonstration farms and technology transfer materials and events to support Canadian pork producers. This report describes progress up to year 3 of this 4 year project. The project is a collaboration between the University of Manitoba,  Manitoba Pork Council, CDPQ and the Prairie Swine Centre. The full project will collect detailed information on fourteen barn sites across the country that have implemented group sow housing. The information collected is in the form of questionnaires, interviews, photos, videos, barn layous and production and economic data. The results are being made available to producers through producer meetings and presentations, newsletters, and a comprehensive
website: www.groupsowhousing.com.
