Iowa swine day 2024 at Ames

By Andi Anderson

Iowa Swine Day is set to take place on July 25 at the Iowa State Center in Ames, bringing together pork producers and industry experts. Organized by the Iowa Pork Industry Center at Iowa State University, the event will feature discussions on critical and emerging topics within the pork industry.

This year’s program will showcase presentations from both national and international experts. Participants will start their day with a plenary session followed by a networking lunch.

The afternoon will be structured around four parallel sessions, each with four talks focusing on current industry topics, labor improvements on farms, herd health protection, and Iowa State's latest research. With speaker approval, these sessions will be recorded and later uploaded to the Pork Center’s YouTube channel.

The day prior to the main event, a preconference symposium titled "Soybean Meal 360" will occur, featuring eight leading experts discussing the importance and evolving use of soybean meal in swine diets. This session, moderated by David Holzgraefe, will run from 12:30 to 5:00 p.m. at the Scheman Building.

Registration for Iowa Swine Day is $85, with free parking available for all events. The day begins early with registration at 7 a.m., followed by the commencement of the official program at 8 a.m. at Stephens Auditorium. A swine networking social will follow the day’s events, providing further opportunities for interaction and learning.

Students can attend for free, although pre-registration is encouraged to ensure a spot. Walk-in registrations are discouraged to streamline event proceedings.
