London ON, March 4, 2014

– The theme is “Positioning for Success” as the pork industry

prepares to gather in London for the fourteenth annual LSC. These two full days of

presentations and workshops have moved to the Hilton London for Wednesday and Thursday,

March 26 & 27, 2014. Speakers will cover topics ranging from practical on-farm decision

making and management to the impacts of international trade on pork production.

“I am excited about the timely topics with something for everyone” says conference Chair

Teresa Van Raay. The program will once again be targeted for sow herds on Wednesday, and

wean to finish on Thursday.

With speakers from across the continent and a new venue I am

looking forward to seeing everyone at this premier swine industry conference.”

experts in the areas of group sow housing, nutrition and lactation, and On

tario’s position in the

global marketplace. At the farm level, workshops will consider piglet and milk management,

reproductive troubleshooting, feeding the sow, and practical aspects of group sow housing.

On Thursday, the focus is on Wean to Finish. Topics such as real factors that affect

profitability, the importance of international trade to Ontario production, and national health

status monitoring will be covered. Farm level workshops will include managing pile-ups,

benchmarking and measuring profitability on-farm, spotting problems early, higher fiber diets,

and improving feed efficiency.

As always, the LSC program will include leading researchers, industry experts and pork

producers. This unique mix of perspectives provides new insights and can lead to lively

workshop discussions. Presenters this year will include: Steve Pollmann, Murphy Brown
