Fueling Manitoba’s Economy

Manitoba’s hog sector is a key contributor to the provincial economy and greatly enhances the lives of all Manitobans.

Our sector contributes over $1.7 billion to the provincial economy annually, helping to fund education, health care and road maintenance. Over the next decade, about $2 billion will be invested by hog farmers and meat processing companies, creating more jobs and economic growth. New and rebuilt operations will incorporate emerging technologies to improve animal care, cost competitiveness and further reduce the sector’s environmental footprint.
