Policy Implementation and Adherence Veterinary Feed Directive regulating use of antibiotics in feed Common Swine Industry Audit Continued emphasis on protecting animal health Technology Opportunities for the future Antibiotic alternatives Gene editing Sow housing

7 Why hogs in Iowa? Fertile soil Abundant feed source Manure is natural fertilizer not waste! Good transportation systems I35, I80 Available slaughtering facilities Diversified operations, contract production and specialization to reduce risk and improve efficiency Opportunity for the next generation!

9 Coming in 2017 Coming in 2018

10 Pork Slaughter Plants Iowa Sub-total 26% of US daily slaughter at 117,950 head Two more plants coming! Surrounding states 37% of US daily slaughter at 167,950 head Regional total 60% of US daily slaughter at 258,750 head

11 Iowa Hogs and Pigs Inventory--USDA *March million head 30.7% of U.S. Inventory *March ,000,000 head 16.5% of U.S. Breeding Inventory» (1968 Breeding Herd = 2,536,000)

13 Economic Impact Direct, indirect & induced impacts from production, harvest and processing.

14 Pork (and manure) is regulated! Manure Management Plans Manure Applicator Certification Manure on Frozen Ground Restrictions Zero Discharge Laws Separation Distances Master Matrix Concrete/Construction Design Standards Karst Terrain Requirements

15 Quality Assurance Programs Pork Quality Assurance Plus All producers delivering to packer must be certified Focus on antibiotic use, food safety and animal welfare Site Status Transport Quality Assurance Truckers delivering to a packer must be certified

21 Defining Sustainability

22 Modern Pork Production Benefits Manure is injected to reduce odor and preserve nutrients Barns are designed for total manure containment Manure is natural fertilizer Barns are climate controlled Pig and employee comfort is critical!

23

24 The Importance of Exports Exports = >25% of U.S. Production >$50/Head Value >$1 billion annually from Iowa! Does not include pork through brokers in other states
