The conference covers high-level content of swine production, disease surveillance and control, the latest in research and development, and international perspectives of the swine industry. The event will provide interactive learning with a forum for discussion and case study with professional leaders.
John recently retired following a 45-year career in all aspects of pig production with a particular emphasis on nutrition, physiology and biochemistry. Prior to his retirement, his most recent research was mainly focused on the development of nutritional programs to enhance the pig’s ability to resist disease, or limit its impact on the pig’s health, well-being and performance. In his retirement, John is consulting locally, national and internationally in swine nutrition and management, while splitting his time between homes in Ames, IA and Toronto, Canada.
