The conference is suited for anyone in the swine industry whether involved in production or finance. Featured topics include economic trends, risk management, production trends, financial management, legislative issues and implementing the pork industry's 'We Care' initiative on the farm.

In addition to the general sessions on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, two concurrent sessions are planned for Thursday. Topics include tax updates, financial impact of a PRRS outbreak, time management, hedge accounting and ethics in pork production.
