2017 Iowa Pork Congress
All of the 2017 Iowa Pork Congress Material
The focus on pigs at the Iowa Pork Congress this year started with a large injection of optimism from Dr. Lowell Catlett with his podium engaging arm waving for "Best Time Ever To Be In Agriculture, The Five Trends That Will Make It Even Better!" [video].
A more cautious optimism note came from Dr. Steve Meyer with his "Prices and Profitability: Economic Outlook" [video] which shared where the agriculture, and meat, economy is headed.
Dr. Meyer addressed some of the conversation about packing plants' capacity, new ones coming on line, and the question about how soon that new capacity will be taken up with pigs.
Thanks to the Iowa Pork Producers Association for support in sharing these presentations with you.
