This past year has brought greater attention than ever before to the safety of the feed being given to pigs due to the outbreak of African swine fever in Asia and Eastern Europe. The pork industry has implemented important management practices to help secure the feed supply. But, work remains as the ASF situation is fluid and ongoing research is being conducted to guide decisions.
As part of National Hog Farmer’s Global Hog Industry Virtual Conference at 1 p.m. Central on June 6, Scott Dee, director of research at Pipestone Applied Research; Liz Wagstrom, chief veterinarian of the National Pork Producers Council; Leah Wilkinson, vice president of Public Policy and Education of the American Feed Industry Association, and Brooke Humphrey, Strategic Marketing and Technology leader of Provimi; will come together for a discussion on the state of feed security and research on approaches and best practices to help mitigate your risk. Bring your questions for these experts. National Hog Farmer Editor Ann Hess will moderate this portion of the Virtual Conference.
