Jim Long, President and CEO Genesus Genetics
This was to be the week of the National Pork Industry Conference (NPIC) at the Kalahari Resort Wisconsin. Instead due to Coronavirus, it has become a virtual conference.
Genesus has been a lead sponsor for twelve years. In that time, we came to appreciate the excellent organization and speakers of the NPIC. This year most importantly we will miss the interaction of the many people at the conference. At the NPIC and other like events we have come to meet and get to know many of the people in our industry. It has enriched us with the knowledge we have learned from these interactions.
As an industry, the pandemic has not only hit many financially, but it has prevented the events such as NPIC that binds us personally in relationships to our industry. We are all diminished by this reality.
As part of NPIC this year, we gave a 19-minute presentation on our feelings on the Global and U.S. markets. Please find below our presentation.
