2016 World Pork Expo
The 2016 World Pork Expo, June 8 - 10, 2016, Des Moines, IA, USA, focused on many conversations about how the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) will impact many organizations in the swine ecosystem with Richard Sellers - Changes on Antibiotic Usage - Background, Now, And January 1 [link], and Dr. Sam Holst - Changes on Antibiotic Usage - Preparing for Changes to Antibiotic Use [link]. The main message was "you should be starting now to be ready by January 1, 2017". Additional presentations shared the environmental and economics of swine, how Checkoff funds have been allocated to promote pork into the summer and fall, and "What does happen during a Common Swine Industry Audit?"
