All of the 2016 Iowa Pork Congress Material

2016 Iowa Pork CongressThere were many conversations in Iowa on the freedom to do business and adding equipment plus expertise to improve profits. Attorney Eldon McAfee shared the status on active nuisance cases; there are more in the courtroom this year than in recent memory as producers look for common ground with incoming neighborhoods [video].

Iowa has been ground zero for pit foam research (and it’s related dangers) so if that’s an issue for you, dig deep on the pit foam session [series].

And the keynote, Dr. Patrick Moore, Ecosense, shares a perspective on how science, policy, and personal beliefs weave together possible conflicting views on the environment, climate, and food [video].
