Animal Science Research Webinar Series
August 1, 2018 —
The Pork Checkoff's annual Animal Science Research Webinar Series, which kicks off Aug. 7, will focus on sow health and gilt management which are key components of increasing Sow Lifetime Productivity. The webinars will offer insights and strategies to increase the length of time sows stay in the herd and the number of pigs they wean during their lifetime. Results from several Checkoff-funded projects will be presented by leading researchers in this area. The webinars will be offered at noon (Central). They are free but require registration.
