There are many rewarding careers in the Saskatchewan pork industry for which training is available. Opportunities exist for in-barn technicians, adminstration, managemen, animal science, research and hauling and transportation. There are also career opportunities as a retail meat specialist.
Prairie Swine Centre Inc. - Saskatoon, SK
The facilities at PSCI provide an excellent venue for students to carry out their research. The strong interaction between the Centre and the pork industry provides students with a unique opportunity to develop a good understanding of the pork industry while pursuing an advanced academic degree. Without the partnership between PSCI and the above-mentioned departments at the University of Saskatchewan, the graduate training at PSCI would not be possible.
Modern offices provide students with a comfortable, professional environment. They have ready access to a networked computer system with software programs relevant to their needs. An in-house library is particularly strong in pork industry publications and complements rather than duplicates holdings at the University of Saskatchewan.
Students receive a competitive stipend during their period of studies at the Centre, and a travel fund is made available to each student to attend relevant scientific conferences as part of their training.
