Pork Management Conference Slated for June

The Pork Checkoff’s 2012 Pork Management Conference will be held in Savannah, Georgia June 19th through 22nd. Those involved in the swine production can expand their knowledge of the industry, engage in financial sophistication and learn about the latest industry trends at this conference – Your Pork Industry Investment. Mary Langhorst – Chair of the Checkoff’s Producer and State Services Committee – says the conference will provide the most up-to-date production and financial information to assist pork producers on their farms.

Two concurrent sessions are planned for Thursday – as well as general sessions on both Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Topics include tax updates, gestation stall versus pen housing, accounting, nutrition economics and more. The registration fee will increase after May 25th – plus there’s a big discount for the first 10 producers who have not attended in the past two years courtesy of AgStar Financial Services. Those interested in attending should visit pork dot org (www.pork.org) soon for the registration form. A detailed list of events is also available online.
