US - The Pork Checkoff is offering the 2012 Pork Management Conference, Your Pork Industry Investment, 19-22 June in Savannah, Georgia.

The conference provides the opportunity for anyone involved in swine production to expand their knowledge of the industry, engage in financial sophistication and learn about the latest industry trends. Attendees also will have a chance to network with industry leaders and create a vision for the future.

"As pork producers continue to face challenges in an ever-evolving industry, this conference will provide the most up-to-date production and financial information to assist pork producers on their farms," said Mary Langhorst, chair of the Checkoff's Producer and State Services Committee and a pork producer from Lafayette, Minnesota.

In addition to the general sessions on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, two concurrent sessions are planned for Thursday. Topics include tax updates, gestation stall versus pen housing, accounting, teambuilding on the farm, opportunity costs to your operation and nutrition economics.

The registration fee for the conference is $395 per person now and $435 per person after 25 May. The first 10 pork producers who have not attended in the past two years will receive a $300 discount on registration, courtesy of AgStar Financial Services.
