There's no question too big or too small for Ashley Englin, new swine specialist for Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in northwest Iowa.

The next time you see someone in a grocery store aisle enthusiastically teaching customers about the pork industry, you might have just met Iowa Pork Industry Center's new extension specialist, Lindsay Peters.

The Iowa Pork Regional Conferences are a long-standing partnership of Iowa Pork Producers Association, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, and the Iowa Pork Industry Center. The 2024 series features four sessions, one each day from Feb. 19-22, at different locations in the state.

An introductory RUSLE2 and P-Index workshop is set for March 4 in Altoona. See the workshop brochure (pdf) for the agenda, requirements and registration form.
