Throughout the month of April, Prairie Swine Centre hosted a series of producer meetings throughout Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario.  The purpose of the meetings was to bring the latest information from the Centre to industry, and provide pork producers an opportunity to speak with the Researchers regarding the research program at PSC along with other ideas, challenges and solutions producers may have.

Prairie Swine Centre would like to thank Elanco Animal Health for their continued sponsorship of the spring producer meeting series.
