As of December 2015, Manitoba Pork had spent almost $9.3 million on third party independent research since 1999 and continues to place a high priority on impactful and informative swine-related research.

Manitoba Pork does not conduct original research in-house. All Manitoba Pork research funding goes to independent outside bodies which in turn conduct original swine research. These research institutions include:

  • Swine Innovation Porc (SIP)
  • University of Manitoba Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences
  • National Centre for Livestock and the Environment (NCLE), University of Manitoba
  • Manitoba Livestock Manure Management Initiative (MLMMI)
  • Prairie Swine Centre
  • Others, including Prairie Improvement Network and the Lake Winnipeg Research Consortium
