Barn fires

Still an issue in Manitoba.

About 5,900 hogs died in two Manitoba barn fires in 2009, down from a record-worst 30,569 hogs in seven separate fires in 2008.

The industry participated in consultations with the provincial fire commissioner’s office in 2009 about new building regulations governing barns.

However, as those regulations would only apply to new barns, they would be largely ineffective due to a provincial moratorium on the construction of new hog barns in most of southern Manitoba.
