Iowa Pork Group Holding Swine Health Meetings

 

Part of the focus on this week’s swine management conferences put on by ISU Extension and the Iowa Pork Producers will be on porcine reproductive and respiratory system virus or PEDV.   Iowa Pork Association’s Policy Director Cody McKinley says the virus is relatively new and difficult to deal with, so bio security is very important as well as picking up the type of information that will be available at these meetings.

McKinley says there will also be research information shared at the conferences as well as federal testing data.

Conferences are being held this afternoon in Sheldon at Northwest Iowa Community College with others Wednesday in Carroll at the Extension office and Friday in New Hampton and September 3 in Washington Iowa.
