The University of Guelph has been doing research into a genetically modified pig since the mid-1990s. The Enviropig would have produced waste lower in phosphorus than that of a regular pig. Paul Slomp is Vice-President of the National Farmers Union. He explains why Ontario Pork withdrew funding for this research.
