Jay Moore (MPPA VP) and Lora Berg (Editor, National Hog Farmer)

While agriculture on a whole is facing several issues, we turn to a more detailed focus on the hog industry.

For this afternoon ag segment, we catch up with Jay Moore, Director of Environmental Services of New Fashion Pork, and also an executive board member of the Minnesota Pork Producer's Association to discuss the overall goals of MPPA. How devastating could the effects of PED virus be to Midwest farms and the pork supply overall? How does the recent announcement via Smithfield and its move to phase out gestation stalls affect the the independent farmer? These questions and more will be explored with Jay.

Then we turn to a fantastic tool available to pork producers to stay up to date on the latest hog issues and industry topics: the National Hog Farmer Blueprint App! Tune in as we join Lora Berg, editor of National Hog Farmer, to discuss its development and how-to's. It's all happening this Thursday at 12:30 p.m.!
