CANADA - Internationally renowned speakers recently shared their unique expertise with the Ontario pork industry at the tenth annual London Swine Conference.

More than 325 participants attended the conference, hosted at the London Convention Centre on 31 March and 1 April.

The programme brought together 19 excellent speakers from various backgrounds, forward- thinking and practical topics, and the opportunity to network with a cross-section of the pork industry.

As in the past, the programme covered practical pork production, from sow and gilt management to maximising herd health visits, production and cost management, as well as alternative farrowing systems. The programme also challenged participants to plan for the future with new technologies for grow-finisher pigs, green initiatives, changing feed ingredients, trends in weaning age and consumer perception of the pork industry.

The conference proceedings, which are now available on the conference website along with all past years’ proceedings, are recognised as a valuable resource for the industry here and around the world – click here.

The London Swine Conference began back in 2001, and continues as a joint effort of the University of Guelph, Ontario Pork, Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs and the Ontario Pork Industry Council. This year’s conference also garnered the support of 36 industry sponsors. It continues to be one of the largest education events for the swine industry in Ontario.

Planning has already begun for next year’s conference. Visit the website for details of the 2011 London Swine Conference as they develop.
