SwineCast update for June 10, 2010, World Pork Expo In Full Swing

World Pork Expo is in full swing and SwineCast is taking an active role in the conversations. We are talking with producers, companies and key stakeholders over the next couple of days and sharing those conversations with you on SwineCast.com.

I am excited at some major efforts coming together to focus on PRRS Area Control. Boehringer-Ingelheim is taking a lead role on this critical disease issue by bringing together efforts from across the U.S. and building a backbone of information and collaborative efforts. You’ll be hearing more from this PRRS Area Control initiative in the coming days on SwineCast.

I also want to draw your attention to some interesting episodes that the SwineCast community is showing interest in: "Man Made Climate Change: Hoax or Myth" (links below). It is always good to hear from you that we’re helping in some small way.
