1 Report from the Sustainable Development and Research Committee Presenters: Rick Bergmann & Mike Teillet April 9, 2014

2 Report from the Sustainable Development and Research Committee ___________________________________________________________________________________________________ Activity Summary: Committee allocated $395,000 for hog industry research in 2013: $95,000 to the Manitoba Livestock Manure Management Initiative (MLMMI) $100,000 to the University of Manitoba (U of M) $75,000 to the Prairie Swine Centre (PSC) $80,000 to Swine-Innovation-Porc (SIP) the National Swine Research Cluster) $10,000 to the Lake Winnipeg Research Consortium

3 Report from the Sustainable Development and Research Committee ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Activity Summary, Cont’d … An additional $20,000 was allocated in 2013 to the Bruce D Campbell Farm Education Centre at the U of M’s Glen Lea Research Station at the National Centre for Livestock and the Environment (NCLE), for a total of $920,000 over the last decade. Similar amounts have been allocated for 2014, with a greater amount being shifted to SIP.

4 Activity Summary, Cont’d … This means that since 1999, Manitoba Pork has contributed a total of almost $8.5 million to independent, third party, swine-related research and institutional development. It is estimated that Manitoba Pork’s $8.5 million has been leveraged into at least $25 million in funding for over 100 swine-related research projects over the last dozen years.

12 Finding out about these Research Projects The results of all research projects are available through the MLMMI website, MRAC’s website (now called the Prairie Improvement Network), the U of M’s (Ag) Website and of course through links on Manitoba Pork’s Website. Report from the Sustainable Development and Research Committee ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

13 Canadian Swine Research & Development Cluster (SIP) In May of 2010, Federal Minister of Agriculture (Gerry Ritz) announced $9.6 million in federal funding under Growing Forward, for a new swine research ‘cluster’ until April of A national swine cluster board was formed, now called Swine Innovation Porc (SIP). MPC is a member. Report from the Sustainable Development and Research Committee ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

14 Swine-Innovation-Porc (SIP) Canadian Swine Research & Development Cluster, Cont’d… 14 major swine research projects from across Canada were funded, with an additional industry allocation of $2.2 million, for a total of almost $12 million. These project have now all wound down (several of which were mentioned above) During , the SIP board established national research priorities, put out a call for research proposals from across Canada, and is currently entering into the final stages of signing final agreements with researchers and the Federal Government under GF II (2014 to 2018) which we anticipate will formally get underway within a few weeks. - END - Report from the Sustainable Development and Research Committee ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
