AUSTRALIA - The NSW Farmers’ Association Pork Committee is inviting all pork producers to attend a Producer Forum and Dinner in Young next week.

The Forum, which will take place at the Young Golf Club on Monday, 24 August, will include an overview of issues affecting the pork industry such as the recent Influenza A H1N1 virus outbreak.

The Forum will provide an opportunity for producers to discuss this and other issues facing the pork industry, including country of origin labelling, livestock identification and traceability and the pork supply chain integrity system.

Also on the agenda are addresses from NSW Farmers’ Association Pork Committee Chair Mal Gett and Australian Pork Limited CEO Andrew Spencer, an overview of current marketing activities from Australian Pork Limited, recent advances in weaner nutrition and securing a more reliable and consistent supply of feed grains.

And, in a first for the Association’s Pork Committee, for those pork producers who are unable to attend, the Forum will be broadcast live online between 4:30pm and 6pm on Monday. To register for the online broadcast, contact Greg Mills at the Department of Industry and Investment NSW on 0488 491 648.

The Pork Producer Forum and Dinner is being jointly hosted by the NSW Farmers’ Association Pork Committee, Australian Pork Limited, the Pork CRC and the Department of Industry and Investment NSW.
