Symposium 2019 | 50th Anniversary

50th anniversary

 

 

The Irish Pig Health Society (IPHS) is delighted to celebrate its 50th Anniversary of the IPHS Symposium on Tuesday, the 9th April 2019 at the Midlands Park Hotel, Portlaoise, Co. Laois.

The IPHS Symposium is the country’s largest pig event and attracts people from all parts of the industry, year after year. Based on your feedback from last year, we have decided to host the Symposium in a central location, the Midlands Park Hotel, Portlaoise, as we feel that this will facilitate a greater attendance from across the industry.

While it is moving to a new venue for 2019, the format will be similar to previous years with registration commencing at 12.00pm with a hog roast lunch and trade stands in place. Presentations will commence at 2.00pm until 6.30pm, with a refreshment break at 4.00pm, followed by an evening meal and light entertainment at 7.30pm.

Entry and/or dinner tickets can be purchased in advance by contacting the event organisers, directly at a cost of €30pp, entry only or €50pp, including dinner. Attendees can also purchase entry and/or dinner tickets on the day of the event.

50th Anniversary Symposium Speaker Topics:

  • An update on African Swine Fever (ASF).
  • Farmer experience of reducing vices in different production systems, presented by Richard Lister, National Pig Association Chairman.
  • What makes the perfect pig for processing?
  • Strategies to attract and retain highly talented people.
  • Health and welfare panel discussion hosted by Justin McCarthy.

The IPHS look forward to another great day, which will underline the importance of the vigorous and adaptable pig industry to the Irish economy.
