Limits on expansion in Manitoba's hog industry, again meant to reduce phosphorus levels in Lake Winnipeg, will now include a requirement for "advanced environmental practices" on farms before new barns can be built.

The provincial government declared "keeping hog manure out of the lake" as one of three key areas in a new strategy aimed at reducing phosphorus levels by 50 per cent, thus cutting algae overgrowth and returning the lake to "a pre-1990 state."
That piece of the province's new Lake Winnipeg strategy will also include a new tax credit to help farmers invest in "new environmental technologies to treat manure responsibly."

The plan also pledges, again, to legislate a permanent ban winter spreading of manure on cropland. The province in 2009 called for such a ban, to take full effect in 2013.
