Through Growing Forward 2, the governments of Canada and Alberta are providing $1.35 million to Alberta Pork to help address the threat of pig diseases, such as porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED), to the swine industry. The funding is in addition to existing Growing Forward 2 grants that are available to pork producers and farm service providers to enhance biosecurity measures in their operations.

Actions supported by the Alberta Pork grant:

  • Updating Alberta Pork's swine risk assessment
  • Training veterinarians to perform on-farm biosecurity audits, and conducting those audits
  • Developing a system for farm service providers to have their biosecurity processes assessed
  • Developing education and information materials for producers
