At the 2020 Allen D. Leman Swine Conference, please enjoy listening to our Monday keynote lecturers, Mark Greenwood of Compeer Financial, Bill Kaelin of McVean Trading and Investments, Paul Yeske of the Swine Veterinary Center and Dave Priesler of the Minnesota Pork Producers’ Association. They will discuss the impact COVID-19 has had in the swine industry and where we should go from here, how price discovery in the hog market needs to change to keep swine producers in business, the leadership of response producers and veterinarians in adapting to the unprecedented challenges posed by the pandemic, and finally, what lessons we need to learn from all this to design a more robust, vibrant and resilient swine industry.
On Tuesday, we will have The HANOR Company leadership, Mr. Myrl Mortenson, Dave Wade and Dr. Tara Donovan, to present how their vision for change includes a strategy to bring added value to their business. Dr. Michelle Kromm, Vice President of Animal Health and Welfare of Jennie-O and veterinarian for Hormel Foods, will share her HPAI (high pathogenic avian influenza) and COVID-19 response experiences focusing on the importance of industry involvement in preparing for and effectively responding to an emergency, so that the swine industry is better positioned to respond to new diseases, such as African Swine Fever.
