URBANA - An intensive course concentrating on the scientific basis of modern swine production technology will be offered June 12-18 by the University of Illinois Department of Animal Sciences.

"Effective integration of new technology into production systems is a major challenge for decision-makers and swine specialists who advise producers," said Gilbert Hollis, coordinator of the Advanced Swine Production Technology Course. "This course will be an in-depth examination of the emerging science in pig biology and the application of these new technologies in state-of-the-art production systems."

Hollis noted that the course has been scheduled to follow the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, IA, June 9-11.

Instructors for the course include Hollis and Mike Ellis, a U of I associate professor of animal sciences and several internationally-known swine researchers.
