“If we want to make improvements in mortality as an industry, certainly science we need to continue to advance that ask the quality of research questions to learn more as an industry, but I think an important part of it that sometimes slips our mind is understanding the people aspect of it, and the importance that the people within our production systems have on the overall performance of our system.” – Dr. Jordan Gebhardt.
