Tradition tied to today's technology for 2nd Annual Natural Pig Workshop

July 5, 2012 | 0 comments

Pasture-based pig rearing will be the subject of a two-day workshop on Monday and Tuesday, July 16 and 17. It is being co-sponsored by www.naturalpig.com and the Glacierland Resource Conservation and Development Council.

To be held at Moraine Park Technical College here, the workshop will open at 1 p.m. on July 16 and conclude at 3:30 p.m. on July 17, according to program organizer Harvey Work of Eden. He can be reached by calling 920-579-1544 or by e-mail to harveywork@ymail.com.

In order of presentation, the topics for the workshop on July 16 are setting goals and selecting the type of pigs to be raised, equipment and facilities, feeds and feeding practices, and pasture management.

The evening will feature a "Pork A' Plenty" meal followed by a 90-minute round table session on topics chosen by the attendees.

Following a breakfast menu that will include pork samplings, the July 17 session will begin at 8:30 a.m. It will cover carcass traits, value-added ideas, cooking practices, profitable marketing plans, herd health management, and a concluding panel discussion on developing a grower network.

During the noon box luncheon, attendees will be invited to ponder a marketing problem titled "Market Impossible."

Workshop attendees who are already raising hogs will be invited to showcase their pork products (ask Work for details).

A Natural Pig syllabus, which contains further information about all of the workshop topics, will also be given to attendees, Work indicates.

The fee for the full workshop is $100 for adults and $50 for a spouse, children over age 16, or other farm member.

Pre-registration, requested by July 6, is available by calling 920-465-3006 or through the www.glacierlandrcd.org web site.
