Swine Innovation Porc

Posted in: Publications by katrina on May 7, 2012

Swine Innovation Porc

Swine Innovation Porc is a multi-year $9.6 million program established within the Growing Canadian Agri-Innovation Program to address the research questions of the pork industry.

The objectives of Swine Innovation Porc are to facilitate research, technology transfer and commercialization initiatives designed to enhance the competitiveness and differentiation of Canada’s pork industry.

The Swine Innovation Research program consists of 14 research projects in which 10 focus directly on increasing revenue or decreasing the cost of production, 4 focus on product differentiation, and 3 technology transfer initiatives.

It is truly a collaborative project involving the coordination of 22 private partners, 100 researchers, 14 universities, and 13 research centres (16 organizations throughout Canada). Prairie Swine Centre and CDPQ have been given the task of developing a coordinated technology transfer program that effectively delivers the research results to pork producers and the industry.

 

Benefits to the Producer

The ultimate goal of Swine Innovation Porc is to ensure adoption of research results in the Canadian pork industry, and ensure measurable results by the completion of the funding agreement (March 2013)..  This will happen in a number of ways including the translation of research results in both official languages, and the development of a lead users program (demonstration farms) that would implement new technologies or management strategies developed through Swine Innovation Porc.  Research projects have identified short, intermediate and long term benefits to the Canadian pork industry in the areas of swine nutrition, genetic improvement, animal welfare and environmental and engineering management.
