The episode includes a show overview and discussion of issues facing the swine industry, which includes trade, feed availability, production costs and GIPSA. AgDay also talks with researchers about a new study involving the potential elimination of salmonella. 

Michelle Rook has market analysis with Paragon Economics’ Steve Meyer to discuss the current market situation for swine operators and gives his price predictions through the rest of the year.
Our "In the Country" story profiles an Oklahoma dad and child who lost their home last month in a massive tornado. They also lost some outbuildings, but their herd survived! Despite the disaster, the dad knew how important it was to his child to have his animals compete at the National Junior Show.
