KAP will lobby the Government of Manitoba to direct resources that will identify and eradicate wild boar populations.

At KAP's recent annual meeting, Manitoba Pork Directors Margaret Rempel and Lyle Peters were successful in getting the following resolution passed: KAP will lobby the Government of Manitoba to direct resources that will identify and eradicate wild boar populations because these animals have the potential to spread African Swine Fever to Manitoba’s swine herds.

There have been many sightings of wild pigs reported in Manitoba over the last decade, and we suspect the population is growing. Wild pigs are an invasive species that ruin wildlife habitat, put our native wildlife species at risk, damage cropland and pose a significant disease risk to farm-raised pigs. However, a total population estimate and accurate location information is not available.
