Leman Conference in Spanish Invitation

This is our Friday rubric: every week a new Science Page from the Bob Morrison’s Swine Health Monitoring Project. The previous editions of the science page are available on our website.

During November 16-17th 2022, the University of Minnesota Swine Group will be hosting our second virtual Leman Conference exclusively in Spanish,
which includes important topics in health, biosecurity, production, emerging diseases, and sustainability. This virtual event is a great opportunity for
Spanish-speaking individuals working in U.S. pig production systems. The conference will have two keynote sessions that will cover the current ASF
situation in the Dominican Republic and the nutritional and feeding strategies when feed ingredients are costly. In addition, we will have 17
presentations dedicated to respiratory disease control; Senecavirus diagnostics, control, and elimination; strategies for decreasing mortality in all
production stages; best biosecurity practices, and sustainability programs presented by industry leaders. We will also have a diagnostic workshop that
will feature a practical necropsy session with best practices to perform post-mortem examinations. Monday is the last day to register! Register online at: https://lemanespanol.umn.edu/
