The 15th international workshop Research in Pig Breeding was held in a pleasant environment of the pension Pod Rozhlednou in Vrbice on 18th October, 2018. The workshop was arranged by the Department of Pig Breeding of IAS in Kostelec nad Orlicí.
We welcomed participants not only from the Czech Republic, but also from Germany, Slovakia, Greece and Spain. Like every year, all the participants had the opportunity to choose the best presentation and the best poster.
Most votes for the best oral presentation were won by Joaquin Miguel from the company Magapor S.L., Spain for “Post cervical artificial insemination: advantages and critical points”. Among the posters, the
winner was “Pork fatty acid composition of Mangalitsa breed” by Ing. Ivan Imrich, Ph.D. from the Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra.
The aim of the workshop is to present updates on pig farming and provide grounds for friendly meetings. Most people participate repeatedly, they like coming back and appreciate the friendly and homely atmosphere of the workshop.
