Research updates for take-home implementation are the cornerstone of Kansas State University's annual Swine Day planned for Thursday, Nov. 17.
"K-State Swine Day is focused on bringing relevant information to swine producers and allied industry professionals," says Joel DeRouchey, K-State Department of Animal Sciences and Industry swine Extension specialist. "We emphasize application information for the swine industry in a wide variety of areas, and this year's program will highlight numerous topics for our attendees."
The 2022 Swine Day will kick off with a technology trade show featuring more than 30 vendors. The trade show opens at 8 a.m. at the K-State Alumni Center, 1720 Anderson Ave., in Manhattan, and concludes at 4 p.m.
During the morning session, K-State ASI Department Head Mike Day will welcome attendees and K-State swine faculty will discuss the latest updates on K-State applied swine research, highlighting nutrition, management, feed processing, feed safety and pig livability.
The afternoon program will feature Steve Pollmann, DSP Consulting LLC, who will discuss past major innovations and emerging technologies in swine production. Pollmann has spent a distinguished career in both academia and industry swine positions.
The Swine Day program begins at 9:15 a.m. and includes lunch. The day wraps up with a reception at 3:30 p.m. featuring K-State Call Hall Ice Cream.
