Alberta Swine Manifest

The Swine Manifest

Movements of swine are reported utilizing a form known as the Swine Manifest. The Swine Manifest contains three major sections: Shipper, Transporter and
Receiver sections.

  • Shipper is a person who ships swine or deadstock or moves swine for the purpose of slaughter within the premises in which they have been raised.
  • Transporter is a person who transports swine or deadstock.
  • Receiver is a person who receives swine or deadstock.
  • Each party keeps a copy of the Swine Manifest as the shipment of swine travels to its final destination.

When a movement of swine starts, the Shipper will start the reporting process by completing the Shipper portion on the Swine Manifest. He/She will then pass along the remaining copies of the Swine Manifest to the Transporter, who will complete his/her portion and ensure the Swine Manifest accompanies the shipment. Once arriving at the Receiver’s location, the Transporter will provide the remaining copies of the Swine Manifest to the Receiver. The Receiver will then complete his/her portion of the Swine Manifest and submit the Top White Copy to Alberta Pork, thus reporting the movement or swine.
