Funds left over from the federal government's hog farm transition program (HFTP) are now on their way to at least some of the producers who didn't make the cut during the program's fourth tender.

The HFTP, budgeted for $75 million when it was set up in late 2009, was meant to help eligible producers exit the sector by providing payments to those who agree to set aside all hog production on their operation for at least three years.

The program, open to all hog producers who were in the business of hog production as of April 1, 2009, saw 420 eligible producers share $70.521 million in funding.
