Our Research

PIWA accesses funding from a range of sources to undertake research, development and extension which meets the needs of the WA and Australian pork industries.

PIWA is currently working on a number of projects.

Current Projects:

  • A case study: assessing the quality of source water fed to pigs in Western Australia (funded by APC Pork Producers Committee)

  • Managing water in a changing climate: An extension toolkit to facilitate adoption of best practice water management for pork and poultry producers in Western Australia (this project is jointly funded through the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund and Pork Innovation WA).

PIWA is also involved in a large project with other collaborators:

  • 3Ps: Pig welfare, production decision support and pork provenance in supply chains, with Curtin University, Xsights Digital, Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (WA), Craig Mostyn Group, and Beanstalk AgTech (funded by Food Agility CRC & project partners)
