Register now for 2014 Red Deer Swine Technology Workshop

Sep 17, 2014

The 16th Annual Red Deer Swine Technology Workshop (RDSTW) is just over a month away.and Alberta Pork is proud to once again be a major sponsor. The workshop's objective was, and still is, to communicate information on practical pig production, primarily to producers, managers and people working in the barn, with the aim of improving productivity and reducing costs.  As such, it has a unique position in the pork industry calendar and is clearly differentiated from the Banff Pork Seminar, the Alberta Pork Congress and other events.

As with previous workshops, the education program is accompanied by a trade show.  Throughout the workshop, time will be made available for interaction with the trade show booths and exhibitors will have the opportunity to introduce their company and products to the delegates.

The agenda is full of practical information that can make a real and immediate impact on farm. Click here to register or for more information.
