Successful Group Housing Systems for Dry Sows Workshops
Wednesday April 2, 2014 – Bourke and Wills Hotel, Toowoomba QLD
Friday April 4, 2014 – Park Royal Hotel, Melbourne Airport VIC
The Australian pork industry is moving towards lower confinement systems after weaning and during gestation. In October 2013, Pork CRC and APL held sow housing workshops to provide information to Australian pork producers on group housing of sows.
The 2014 sow workshops will provide an update of how pork producers are managing these changes to lower confinement systems some 18 months later. These workshops will provide new information on the principles and strategies to mix sows in groups from weaning and after insemination.
The one-day workshops will be a combination of presentations and facilitated panel discussions with pork producers who have recently changed from stall to group housing.
Full program and registration details will be circulated closer to the event. All producers and industry stakeholders are encouraged to attend.
