Get Registered for 2016 PorkBridge & SowBridge Programs

Don't have a lot of time to attend a seminar or conference, but are still interested in staying current with new research and management techniques in the pork industry?  PorkBridge and SowBridge programs allow managers and employees to increase their knowledge and skills without needing to leave the comfort of their home or farm office.  Both programs are distant education programs combining a presentation viewed on a computer with live presentations delivered by teleconference from topic experts at a scheduled time or via a recording if unable to participate during the scheduled time.

The difference in the two programs is the audience they are aimed at.

PorkBridge is for those involved with grow-finish swine operations.  Six sessions are offered every other month throughout the year.  All sessions start at noon Central Time and last approximately 90 minutes, which includes time for questions.  Cost is $125 for the series.

SowBridge is for those involved with managing or caring for sows and/or litters, and boars.  Twelve monthly sessions take place throughout the year.  All sessions start at 11:30 am Central Time and last approximately 60 minutes, which includes time for questions.  Cost is $250 for first registration from an entity and $125 for each subsequent registration from the same entity.

A list of program topics for both PorkBridge & SowBridge can be found on the UMN Swine Extension website along with registration brochures.   Registration for both programs is encouraged by January 10, 2016 to ensure materials are received for the first session.
