Picking up pig knowledge in the Webinar Week

In just over a week from now, it is time to tune in to your laptop for sure. Between 16 and 20 November, it is time for the Misset International Webinar Week, with a series of interesting pig webinars to come. Attendance is free of charge.

The Misset International Webinar Week was planned in a time that the entire world of agriculture had initially planned to travel to Germany to attend EuroTier. As is well-known, EuroTier had to be postponed because of Covid-19. The initiative for the webinar week was taken by Misset, publisher of Pig Progress, to fill that gap of no networking, meeting and learning. During this week, 4 pig webinars will be brought to you from studios in the Netherlands, all touching on relevant topics in the industry.
