Head to WY State Fair for PEDv Disease Seminar!


The event, featuring National Pork Board member Dr. Brett Kaysen, will begin at noon on Tuesday.

The following is a press release from the WY Pork Producers Council:

Wyoming Pork Producers Council (WPPC) is offering a Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDv) Disease Seminar for swine producers on Tuesday, August 12 in Douglas, Wyoming. A presentation from National Pork Board member Dr. Brett Kaysen will begin at 12pm in the Swine Arena located on the State Fairgrounds.  The lunchtime program provides timely educational information and tools to combat the destructive porcine disease along with an audience Q&A session. 


Dr. Kaysen of Nunn, Colo., is a partner in Flatland Showpigs and is an instructor in the Department of Animal Sciences at Colorado State University. He is a seedstock producer and markets 480 pigs annually. Nationally, Kaysen is serving his first three-year term on the National Pork Board. He also serves on Pork Checkoff Youth PQA Plus® task force committee. He is an Operation Main Street 2.0 speaker and serves on the National Junior Swine Association board of directors. At the state level Brett serves on the Colorado Pork Producers Council.


“WPPC was presented with an opportunity to offer valuable information about PEDV in a time and place that has a large cross-section of Wyoming’s swine industry present,” says WPPC Executive Director Anne Miller.  “We hope many of the swine exhibitors will grab their lunches and head for the Swine Arena bleachers for Tuesday’s program.” 


The seminar is free to all involved in pork production. Please contact the WPPC office with any questions by calling (406) 853-3610 or email wyomingpork@yahoo.com.
