Update for January 8th, 2009

SwineCast is heading to the great white north again this year to connect with Canadian producers at the Banff Swine Conference. We fly into Calgary, then drive two hours to what many believe is the premier Canadian swine conference in one of the most beautiful locations in North America (assuming you're good on snow and mountains).

Always an international flavor but generally good conversations with producers dealing with the new economic scenarios. The conversations posted from Banff are up to date technology and management centered so check out the SwineCast Conference Connection for the full set starting January 21st.
