The afternoon is organized into four concurrent sessions with a total of 12 topics: components of sustainable production, foreign animal disease preparation, practical barn level operation and new research at ISU. Attendees may choose any of the sessions and topics.

The barbeque lunch is provided by TechMix, AB Vista and Lynch Livestock, and will be held outside just south of the building. Student attendees are invited to the students-only luncheon and presentation sponsored by Iowa Pork Producers Association.
