The Banff Pork Seminar is accepting applications for the Dr. F.X. Aherne Prize for Pork Innovation.
It is open to anyone who has developed an innovation relevant to the North American pork industry, including feeding; breeding; ventilation; disease control and prevention; transportation; manure management; animal handling; facility or enterprise management; and pork quality and safety.
The innovation can be an original solution or make creative use of existing technology. Winners receive free conference registration, accommodation, and travel for the Banff Pork Seminar on Jan. 7-9.
Nominations must be made by Oct. 31. For more info, go to banffpork.ca.
