Iowa State University will be hosting the annual Iowa Swine Day on Thursday June 30 in conjunction with the Iowa Pork Industry Center and Iowa Pork Producers Association. 

The event is an opportunity for pork producers, veterinarians and students of all ages to hear the latest industry developments; the day includes a number of specialist speakers who will cover a range of important topics.

Running from 9am until 4:35pm in the Scheman Building on the University campus in Ames, it will be followed by a free barbeque, cooked by award-winning Smokey D’s, courtesy of AB Vista and Techmix.

AB Vista spokesperson Dr Casey Bradley, says the day will be a great opportunity to connect with, and learn from, industry experts.

“This well-established event, now in its fifth year, continues to provide attendees with a wealth of information and deserves its place as a key event on the swine calendar. We encourage anyone connected with the pork industry to register,” she said.
