Leman Swine Conference, September 17-20, 2016, St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.

Dr. Hayes closes with two key points: The long run opportunities for US pork are enormous, especially if we continue to implement trade agreements, and over-reliance on China brings enormous risks (South China Sea, Steel, Chicken, DDGS, Self Sufficiency, Trump).
