PorkBridge is a distance educational programs provide relevant and accurate information from a variety of university and industry experts.

Get the information you need without the hassle of traveling or giving up a whole day to attend a meeting. Producers and others in the industry can participate from home, in an office or in the swine unit.

Registration is every January for that calendar year of PorkBridge presentations every other month.

How does PorkBridge work?

Live presentations are delivered by teleconference from topic experts. All sessions are recorded and audio files are available for download from each session for later use. Before each session, subscribers will receive an email message with links to download the materials for that session. You can get the same materials via a CD (by request only).

PorkBridge is aimed at those who own, manage or work in swine grow-finish facilities. Six sessions are offered on the first Thursday of every other month throughout the year. All sessions start at 11:30 a.m. Central Time and last a maximum of 60 minutes, which includes time for questions. Cost is $125 for the series, covering supporting materials and one phone line per session. View a video of a previous PorkBridge session.

PorkBridge and SowBridge are sponsored by a group of 11 university Extension programs with Sarah Schieck and Lee Johnston of the University of Minnesota Extension serving as program coordinators. Iowa Pork Industry Center coordinates all registration and subscriber mailings.
