Environmental Practices

Manitoba pork producers are excellent stewards of the land. They use highly sophisticated techniques and best management practices to reduce odour, greenhouse gases and run-off into waterways. An example of one of the sophisticated techniques used by our pork producers is precision manure application, using GPS-guided auto-steer tractors for injection.
