2019 Conference Review

Thank you to the over 120 Attendees, Exhibitors, Presenters and Sponsors who made the 
First Midwest Organic Pork Conference such a success!!  

2019 Pork Conf 

The 2019 Midwest Organic Pork Conference addressed a range of topics that included the background and benefits of organic hog production, information for transition, expansion or improving organic and pasture-raised hog production, systems for maintaining animal health and pest management, and methods for economic viability and success within an organic hog production system. The conference is hosted by the Iowa Organic Association and supported by an OrganiAgriculture ResearcanExtension Initiative (OREI) grant (grant no. 2018-51300-28427 /project accession no. 1016579) from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

The Midwest Organic Pork Conference brings together those conducting research (academic and non-academic), expert organic and niche hog farmers, industry experts and others to share current organic hog research and first-hand experience with new and advanced organic farmers from across the Midwest and other states from across the country. This conference will continue to support further academic interest and farmer-researcher interest in identifying challenges in organic hog production and new research opportunities to help solve those challenges.
