2015 Iowa Pork Congress
While there is continued interest in animal health, specifically Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv), there are other subjects that are capturing the attention of pork producers. Pit foaming is always something that can cause issues and research by Drs. Steve Hoff, Andersen, and Kerr is helping understand and mitigate it.
Additionally, the markets are doing much better for producers but there is always some risk to better understand; Dr. Steve Meyer helps to explain. And helping farmers connect with consumers is continuing to gain the attention of all involved in agriculture; telling farm stories through social media and understanding consumer food insights are some examples.
Again, thanks to the Iowa Pork Producers Association for support in sharing these presentations with you.
