SwineCast update for May 13, 2010, How Can Enzootic Pneumonia Effect Your Operations?

An important update from past NPPC president Don Butler on three Free Trade Agreements which are complete in every respect except… we’re waiting on Congressional passage. Given the twin hammers of H1N1 and world economic upheaval, the U.S. pork industry is doing all it can to grow demand through exports and maintain the black ink of the past few months.

We’ve received an updated 'At The Meeting' presentation looking at Enzootic Pneumonia, with many thanks to sponsor Boehringer-Ingelheim for this important information.

We’re headed for Des Moines June 8 for the World Pork Expo. Send me a note and let's touch base; I'll even buy the coffee!
