SwineCast update for March 3, 2011, Pork Industry Forum is Underway

The Pork Industry Forum is getting underway in Phoenix. National Pork Producers Council representatives will join to discuss important industry issues and legislative concerns while considering policy changes and world trends.  A lot to think about in a very short time.  Stay in touch on SwineCast for conference coverage and posted releases.

We also stay over an extra couple of days for the American Association of Swine Veterinarian annual meeting.  Many thanks to the AASV for making our attendance possible.  Keep an eye on on the headliners page at SwineCast for short articles and highlights.

BTW - one presentation from the Minnesota Pork Congress is head on shoulders over the all the others in total downloads.  Title?  How to Feed Hogs On $5... er $7 corn.

SwineCast® Conversations

Agriculture Telling its Story

  • What Are Agriculture-Associated Diseases? - Agriculture is an integrated part of society, keeping people feed and supplied with commodities to make life better. However, most people do not think about the disease impacts of agriculture to humans and society.
  • What is the Future of Ag Ed? - What are some of the issues to keeping agriculture education alive? How does FFA, 4-H, and Extentions work to keep people engaged? This AgChat discussion aims to help highlight opportunities and concerns in ag ed.
  • Agvocacy 2.0: Adding a Human Voice to the Farm - At South by Southwest (aka SxSW) on March 13, Emily Zweber (dairy), Jeff Fowle (rancher), Chris Chinn (pork), and Zach Hunnicutt (crops) will share how farmers are using social and new media to bridge the gap between the 2% of the population who are farmers, and the remaining 98% of people who are not. The panel, moderated by Marla Schulman, are all family farmers who are driven and deeply committed to agriculture and want to share what they have with others.
