With the 2021 Banff Pork Seminar less than one month away, producers are urged to get registered for the virtual online event, providing full access to speaker presentations before and after the seminar.
Although registration is free for the seminar that runs Jan. 5 and Jan. 7, only those who register ahead of time for the seminar will be able to revisit presentations or have access to proceedings after the seminar.
“Our decision to go with a virtual conference for 2021 was based on keeping delegates safe during the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Ashley Steeple, Seminar Coordinator. “However, in keeping with our history, we wanted to continue to offer the high quality experience that our in-person events have always provided.”
Program details and the registration link are on the BPS website at: www.banffpork.ca. Delegates will have the option of watching speaker presentations live or watching later at their convenience.
The 50th anniversary celebration originally scheduled for this year has been delayed to the next in-person event with BPS partner, the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, says Steeple. Hopefully that will be in 2022.
The Banff Pork Seminar is coordinated by the Department of Agricultural, Food and Nutritional Sciences, University of Alberta, in cooperation with Alberta Pork, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry and other pork industry representatives from across Canada.
More complete details will be available in the Inside BPS Special Report which can be accessed by link from the Seminar website www.banffpork.ca. Follow BPS on Twitter @BanffPork.
