Mark it in your calendars, Swine Online’s next meeting is January 19! Pork producers are invited to join this interactive online producer forum to chat about all things pigs.

The next Swine Online meeting will take place on Wednesday, January 19 at 8 p.m., and we will be covering gilt development and sow longevity. Participants will receive a Zoom meeting link the morning of the meeting.

Please come prepared to share, ask questions and build community within the swine industry.

If you want to show other producers your barn(s) or pig management skills, the organizers are looking for a couple of volunteers to take the group on a virtual picture tour of your barn. This helps to generate discussion points, and everyone enjoys seeing what other producers are doing. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Tim Blackwell at tim.blackwell@ontario.ca.
