The Government of Canada is investing in an innovative project that will benefit Canadian swine producers and consumers. Coop fédérée will receive up to $80,000 to study and develop feeding recommendations to maximize sow milk production through gestation, ensuring optimal growth of suckling piglets.

The funding will go towards studying the effects and benefits of a multi-step feeding regime during gestation on mammary development and lactation performance. Milk production of sows is vital to producing healthy piglets, as heavier piglets are more vigorous and more resistant to disease. Developing and studying nutrition strategies will help improve lactation performance of sows. Researchers will make feeding recommendations that will assist producers in improving performance without creating additional feed costs.
