The National Sow Housing Conversion Project is underway. Two pilot barns that were identified from a number of applicants from Saskatchewan and Manitoba have entered into the first stages of the planning process to look at options for converting to group sow housing.

As the sow housing conversion debate continues across Canada, the Prairie Swine Centre along with University of Manitoba have launched a project to help producers find the most cost effective and beneficial housing for their sows by utilising a model produced at the University of Manitoba. The model uses the physical attributes of the current barn along with the producer’s plans for the future to develop the best cost barn conversion plan.

The project aims to provide blueprints and cost estimates for barn conversion that can be used by the producers and construction team to complete the conversion. This information, along with the producers experiences during the planning process will be shared with the industry to give other pork producers insight into the practicalities of converting to group housing.
