Federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz and Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart announced nearly $3.8 million in funding for 30 livestock and forage research projects.

Three projects will look at controlling Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PED), a virus that does not pose a risk to human health or food safety but can cause significant death in pig herds.

Third party support contributes additional funds to many of these ADF projects, with several industry partner organizations committing an amount totalling nearly $1.2 million. Co-funding groups include Western Grains Research Foundation, SaskMilk and Sask Pork, among others.

"Efforts to better understand and control the PED virus and emerging diseases are vital to the competitiveness of our industry. Engineering advances in air quality systems will enhance the health and welfare of sows as producers transition from individual pens to group sow housing"- Florian Possberg, Chair, Sask Pork.
