Badger Swine Symposium Slated for November 5
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/28/2020

The University of Wisconsin-Extension Swine Team, along with the Wisconsin Pork Association, are inviting pork producers and industry professionals from across the state to the seventh annual Badger Swine Symposium. The program will be held virtually on November 5 due to the pandemic.

Organizers say the meeting will include a number of state and national speakers on important topics impacting the pork industry.

The live portion of the symposium will kick off at 12:00 p.m. with a market update from Brenda Boetel, professor and agricultural marketing specialist with UW-River Falls. A panel discussion will follow featuring industry stakeholders on how COVID has affected their operations, markets and management.

Jeff Swenson of the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture will also talk about how the state has developed additional plans, resources and community connections in response to the potential need to implement mass euthanasia of swine due to limited slaughter plant capacity.

Participation in the online meeting is free, but pre-registeration is required by November 3.

For more information or to sign-up for the Badger Swine Symposium, call the Wisconsin Pork Association at 800-822-7675.
