2017 Minnesota Pork Congress
The start of s new year brought out new info and thoughts on the business of swine. Starting off the Minnesota Pork Congress was the Taste of Excellence highlighting what local chefs can make with a selection of pork.

The seminar sessions led off with Dr. Paul Sandberg sharing an update on the Swine Health Information Center and having a question and answer session to get thoughts on big ideas. Details on antibiotics going forward was shared by Dr. Mike Apley and the view into the markets was detailed by Dr. Steve Meyer.

Of particular interest to attendees was the keynote by Dr. Lowell Catlett. His message was simple: "It's a great time to be in ag".

Many thanks to the Minnesota Pork Producers Association for allowing us to share these valuable presentations.
