Seminar on Swine Disease Draws Crowd in China

USGC conference on swine disease helps improve industry; build feed demand.

Last week in Wuhan, China U.S. Grains Council consultants Robert Morrison and Gordon Spronk reviewed up-to-date techniques of swine disease management for participants from 12 provinces.

"The newly established National Swine Industry Technology Support Project invited its about 20 experiment stations, all being large swine operations," says Jason Yan, USGC technical program director. "Many longtime USGC partner farms also participated in the seminar."

About 50 swine operations were invited to participate in conference and according to Yan representatives from more than 100 attended.

"We expect the practical techniques reviewed in the seminar will help to improve the production and herd health of the producers' farms, which will ultimately create additional demand for feed grains," Yan says.
