Webinar: Drought Webinar for Swine Producers

  • 08/29/2012
  • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • ISU Extension Offices

Chad Hart, Iowa State University crop marketing specialist, will assess the current and future crop outlook producers. Lee Schulz, ISU livestock marketing specialist, will elaborate on the situation facing pork producers and the pork market outlook. Matt Swantek, ISU swine field specialist, will answer questions regarding feed options and discuss feed alternates.

The workshop will discuss ideas for saving feed and managing herds such as cleaning up disease by closing the herd, streamlining the sow herd size, increase wean age and management of culls and cull strategies.

“Insight will be shared on sale weight adjustment when margin over feed cost is low or negative and the market is declining because of the seasonal market price,” said Dave Stender, ISU swine field specialist.

Local discussion will be encouraged with a question and answer discussion to wrap up the program. Contact your local ISU Extension Office for more information.
