Joel DeRouchey, a K-State extension swine specialist, underscores the conference's reputation for delivering pertinent information that enhances production for Kansas swine producers.  

The event will be held at the Stanley Stout Center in Manhattan. The day kicks off with coffee and donuts at 9:15 a.m., followed by the program at 9:30 a.m. Lunch is included, and the conference concludes at 3 p.m.
