Good morning, everyone.
Here is the problem with the AgriRecovery program. Under the framework announced earlier this spring, the costs of euthanizing pigs are not eligible under the program, as Mr. Roy mentioned. Eventually, the pig flow issue was resolved, but not without leaving producers in trouble.
The flow of pigs was delayed and this affected certain technical parameters or efficiency coefficients of businesses. The requirement to keep pigs longer can cause a deterioration in feed conversion and average daily gain. It also has the effect of increasing the mortality rate. In some cases, farmers have had to put mature pigs and piglets in the same barn, which is really not a recommended biosecurity measure. This is becoming a major issue.
