Manitoba barn building expected to gain momentum

Applications are expected to increase with lifting of moratorium.

The Manitoba hog industry hopes to see 100 more barns built in the next five years.

It’s proof that farmers believe the long-lasting and long-loathed Manitoba hog barn moratorium has truly ended.

“We expect to have a few barns constructed this year,” Manitoba Pork Council chair George Matheson told the organization’s recent annual meeting.

“For us, really there has been no construction for probably eight years now, so this is very good news.”

Mike Teillet, the pork council’s manager of sustainable development, said two completed applications have already come in, and he received three more serious calls a day earlier.

There should soon be a stream of applications, he added.

“We are projecting probably 100 barns … over the next five years, or more.”
