January 21, 2015 – Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

Today Federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz and Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart announced nearly $3.8 million in funding for 30 livestock and forage research projects. Funding is provided through the province's Agriculture Development Fund (ADF).

Some of the projects to receiving funding include research to improve cow and calf performance through diet, develop new forage lines to extend the spring grazing season and investigate options for recycling baler twine and net wrap. Three projects will look at controlling Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PED), a virus that does not pose a risk to human health or food safety but can cause significant death in pig herds.

Third party support contributes additional funds to many of these ADF projects, with several industry partner organizations committing an amount totalling nearly $1.2 million. Co-funding groups include Western Grains Research Foundation, SaskMilk and Sask Pork, among others.
