A recent article in the Wall Street Journal highlighted the USDA's inability to accurately assess crop conditions and harvest, which adds greatly to price volatility and impacting feed availability. NPPC Board Member Randy Spronk speaks to the issue in a recent conversation in Kansas City.

Economist Steve Meyers, a speaker at the Midwest Pork Conference, also discussed feed grains in the larger picture. BTW, a great turn out at the Indiana-based conference. A lot of interest, or positive outlook, or 2 days of rain? What do you think?  Let us know at Feedback@SwineCast.com.
How is your swine conference connection developing? Conferences are more than just the event location, presenters, food, and attendees. Each successive event you plan is building a feeling, a movement, possibly even a brand.

To keep that event in the hearts and minds of all involved requires a series of actions that share the experience, information, and value of the conference. Learn more about how Truffle Media Networks can help you with your Conference Connections.
