Although the process might be a little different than the past, the lines being drawn regarding a possible hog barn development in the municipality seem very much like a decade or more ago.
Earlier this year, it was announced that HyLife was planning a swine operation in Boissevain-Morton. What is known as the HyLife Merlot Nursery, it is to be located at S ½ of SE 34-04-20 WPM, on the north side of the municipality, close to the border with Grassland Municipality. It would be a 24,000 head hog nursery operation consisting of four barns and a provincially approved, engineered earthen manure storage facility. It would be the first HyLife project in the municipality, and the first new hog operation in a long time.
