US - Conventional and alternative breeding and gestation management are the focus of Pork Checkoff-funded Swine Training Programs scheduled for July in Waseca and Morris.

Breeding and Gestation Management will be July 27 and 28 at the University of Minnesota Southern Research and Outreach Center, Waseca, and Alternative Breeding and Gestation Management will be July 31 and Aug. 1 at the University of Minnesota West Central Research and Outreach Center, Morris. Registration deadline is July 17.

Many people go to summer school at least once in their life. Why not swine producers?

At the Waseca workshop, instructors will examine and evaluate indoor confinement housing systems utilizing individual stalls and large group housing.

At the Morris workshop, instructors will examine and evaluate alternative housing systems, including large group pens in hoop buildings and the Swedish deep-bedded system.
