April 29 webinar to discuss options for carcass disposal for pork producers

Over the last couple weeks, several pork processing plants have either been shut down or have reduced processing due to the COVID-19 outbreak. While the processing plants are focusing on getting themselves running again, pork producers are faced with near-term critical problems needing attention now.

In the current situation, pork slaughter capacity has become a limiting resource, and pork producers may be faced with an unfortunate situation of having to destroy what they have cared for and raised.

A webinar for the pork industry has been scheduled to understand potential options for emergency disposal of animal tissue for April 29 at 8 a.m.
