If you wanted something "high tech" it was at Pork Congress. Feed delivery, watering systems, heating and ventilation all controlled by computers. If something goes wrong, the manager or owner gets an email, text message or phone call! Even cleaning and disinfecting gestation and farrowing stalls can be high tech
The exhibitors at Pork Congress are there to talk to pork producers and sell their products or services. A nice, comfortable chair is one way to get people into your booth. Food and free stuff are other ways that work!
Pork Congress 2015 wrapped up at 1 p.m. today. It sure didn't take exhibitors very long to start tearing down their displays. This shot was taken at 1:10 p.m. Everything looked so nice, and in about a half-hour it is all gone
There is some big equipment at the Minnesota Pork Congress, too. This is a liquid manure tank on display in the trade show. It must be a lot of fun for the semi driver to haul this through downtown Minneapolis
This is a picture of Pork Congress at the Minneapolis Convention Center this afternoon. The first shot I took was just before the trade show opened this morning. There are a lot of pork producers here talking with all types of business about products and services they provide
This is a picture of the Trade Show at Pork Congress being held today and tomorrow at the Minneapolis Convention Center. There are more than 160 business that work with the swine industry here to talk with Minnesota Pork Producers
On Monday afternoon I went out to the farm to haul corn. What a day to be outside, clear skies and about 35 degrees. I took this picture of one of my fields at sunset. The snow is almost entirely melted as we enjoy this January thaw
On Wednesday and Thursday I will be heading up to the Minneapolis Convention Center for Pork Congress. Yes, the farm boy is going to the big city! This is the only swine-specific show in Minnesota. There is a big trade show, educational seminars, swine industry awards and a lot of fun
This is the time of year when farmers attend a lot of meetings. You could call them "continuing education." It is all about getting the latest research information that we can use for the next growing season
There was a big crowd at the Annual Winter Crops Day on Friday at the Southern Research Outreach Center in Waseca. It also was Friday in Kasson. Here, Jeff Vetsch is giving a presentation on soil fertility levels and corn yields
