Oklahoma Pork Congress postponed

The Oklahoma Pork Council announced today the 2018 Oklahoma Pork Congress scheduled for Feb. 23 has been postponed. A new date will be announced as soon as one can be finalized.

Oklahoma Pork Council executive director Roy Lee Lindsey says the Congress was being postponed out of an abundance of caution to protect the herd health of Oklahoma’s hog farmers. “There has been a recent outbreak of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus in Oklahoma,” Lindsey says. “Oklahoma’s hog farmers consider it a priority to protect the health and well-being of their animals. We have elected to postpone Pork Congress until later this year.

“PEDV is a disease that impacts swine,” says Lindsey. “There is no impact to humans and your pork remains safe.”

The Oklahoma Pork Council board of directors will meet next week to select a new date.
