The secrets of successful swine feeding programs - Dr. Mike Tokach
"You can feed and raise pigs in a lot of different ways, and there's no single magical way of setting the ingredients that have to be used."
Optimizing sow retention - how to do it right - Dr. Kyle Coble
"Sow mortality is a very complex and multifaceted issue that certainly will not be fixed with one silver bullet."
The secrets behind biosecurity and disease containment - Dr. Karine Talbot
"Too often we keep asking who is responsible for biosecurity on pig farms. My answer is "everyone": you can't have great biosecurity without everyone's compliance"
