How is Zinpro Tackling Nutrition Performance?

Zinpro - Minor Changes In Nutrition = Major Impacts On PerformanceZinpro - Minor Changes In Nutrition = Major Impacts On Performance Sow performance metrics such as pigs per litter, birth and weaning weight, and lactation feed intake are all key indicators for a sow’s ability to produce robust piglets. Positive metrics add up to better-performing pigs and higher profits for producers. Swine producers can make minor adjustments that can pay off in major ways when they customize their feed and nutrition program with performance trace minerals.

SwineCast Update for March 22, 2012, Legislative Policy and Pink Slime

SwineCast is across the beltway from Washington, D.C. this week for the National Pork Producers Council Legislative Action Conference. Over a hundred producers are talking with legislators on topics important to you. We'll be sharing key presentations from the conference but here's a teaser for you. NPPC's Vice-President for Domestic Policy, Audrey Adamson, joins us to discuss where her focus will be in coming months. Can you speak to these issues when asked by your legislator what's on your mind?

And ever had that sinking feeling you get when you see or hear something you KNOW can't be good? Beef producers got that as 'Pink Slime' grew into the issue that wouldn't die. Kansas State's John Gonzales shares what it is and what it does.
