The June social for Young Professionals in Ag took place at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive. The evening kicked off with a networking social where members visited over beverages and appetizers.
To provide additional value to membership in YPiA and to enhance professional development within the ag industry, a peer to peer learning opportunity was presented. Laura Plump, YPiA member and project manager at Lessing-Flynn educated the group on the #RealPigFarming campaign launched by the National Pork Board. She gave background on how the campaign was developed, launched, and carried out. It is still a very active campaign for the Nation Pork Board and swine industry.
