Ontario Pig Health Check-up Webinars

The Ontario Pig Health Check-up program will provide funding to support veterinary consultations for small scale pig herd owners. Good animal health practices are key tools to prevent the introduction, development and spread of transmissible animal diseases.

The spread of African swine fever (ASF) in Europe, Asia and more recently in the Caribbean is a particular concern to the Ontario and North American pork industry. While large commercial pork producers and swine veterinarians are well aware of the potential risk to our swine herd if the disease should enter Canada, there may be gaps in resources for owners of small pig herds, homesteaders, animal sanctuaries, and pet pig owners. As well, some may not have an established relationship with a veterinarian.  We hope this program will facilitate that connection.

To learn more about the program, please attend one of the three one-hour webinars listed below.  The webinars are appropriate for veterinarians interested in participating in the program or others who may recommend the program to pig owners, such as producer association staff, agribusinesses, etc.
