Registration for both PorkBridge and SowBridge distance education programs is now open. PorkBridge is aimed at those who own, manage or work in swine grow-finish facilities. SowBridge is for people involved in managing or caring for sows and/or their litters, and boars, including operation owners, employees, technicians, managers and technical service providers.
Both the first SowBridge session on February 6 and the first PorkBridge session on February 7 will feature Foreign Animal Disease Awareness with Patrick Webb of the National Pork Board.
