These issues will require close monitoring by your representative organizations and veterinary medical suppliers.

There was a special panel on Sow Housing Options that shares an overview of where the industry is today, in both research and production arenas.

These and other presentations from the Iowa Pork Congress made possible by the Iowa Pork Producers Association. If you see value, thank your representative for making these available and plan on attending the Iowa Pork Congress next January!
