The National Pork Board will host its annual Pork Management Conference, April 19-21, in Nashville, Tennessee.
The 2017 conference will address current business trends and challenges facing the U.S. pork industry. Through presentations, breakout sessions and networking, attendees will gain insight on the pork industry, its challenges and financial management practices that improve the performance and efficiency of pig farming.
“The Pork Management Conference is more than an industry meeting but an interactive experience,” said Andrew Reinecker, chair of the Checkoff’s Producer and State Services Committee and a pig farmer from York Springs, Pennsylvania. “The engagement between the guest presenters and experts and those working in the industry offers producers an opportunity to gain knowledge from different areas, ask questions and implement this information on their farms.”
In addition to the general sessions open to all attendees on the mornings of April 19, April 20 and April 21, two concurrent afternoon sessions are planned on April 20. Topics include benchmarking, safety programs, emerging social media, accounting, tax updates and price discovery, and results from the recent industry employee compensation survey.
The registration fee is $425 per person through March 31 and increases to $475 beginning April 1. A registration form and a detailed list of events are available at pork.org/pmc.
