After a successful inaugural Midwest Organic Pork Conference, where over 120 people attended from 10 different states, we are excited to announce the 2nd Annual Midwest Organic Pork Conference will be held at the Hotel Julien in Dubuque, Iowa on March 13 and 14. We will continue to present the best resources and information available to help expand opportunities for organic pork production and distribution. Speaker proposals, sponsor and exhibitor applications are now being accepted. For more information, visit MidwestOrganicPorkConference.org or call Kris at 515.276.6010.
The Midwest Organic Pork Conference brings together those conducting research (academic and non-academic), expert organic and niche hog farmers, industry experts and others to share current organic hog research and first-hand experience with new and advanced organic farmers from across the Midwest and other states from across the country. Topics include background and benefits of organic hog production, information for transition, expansion or improving organic and pasture-raised hog production, systems for maintaining animal health and pest management, and methods for economic viability and success within an organic hog production system. This conference will continue to support further academic interest and farmer-researcher interest in identifying challenges in organic hog production and new research opportunities to help solve those challenges.
