SwineCast update for January 7, 2010, Antibiotics legislation potential and upcoming swine conferences

Two major state swine conferences coming up in the next couple of weeks and SwineCast is joining a premier list of program sponsors to bring you the presentations, conversations, and analysis. These important educational opportunities will be posted at SwineCast.com in the days following the Minnesota Pork Congress and the Iowa Pork Congress.

Be looking for us at these meetings and throughout the year as we continue to bring you conversations, photos and presentations from the gathering places for the U.S. Swine industry.

Some serious concern related to feed molds and mycotoxins are featured in recent SwineCast programs. As we talked with grain producers, it was apparent the late, wet season would impact grain quality. Now we’re hearing of testing methods and tracking grain shipments to check where it originated, some states experiencing more of an issue than others.

Drop us an email to let us know what issues you see of paramount importance to the future of your operation and the swine industry. With the world economy showing significant signs of strength, we can only hope profitability for livestock producers will return soon.
