    Pigs will only be able to grow at their max potential if they are in good health, and an important component of having good health is having proper air quality and airflow in your barns. In today's episode, I talk with Dr. Brett Ramirez about proper airflow, the importance of air quality in new and old barns, and other things to consider when designing a new swine facility. "Ventilation is important and can't be ignored. It is something that works 24/7 and if it fails it's pretty catastrophic if you aren't prepared." - Dr. Brett Ramirez

In this episode, I talk with Sara Pardall about her experiences as a swine farm manager as she shares insights and techniques to train employees and how to build a strong team of swine professionals. "You can pay people all the money in the world, but if they don't feel like they belong, they aren't going to stay." - Sara Pardall

    What will the future of pig farming look like? That is an old question with many different possible answer. Some people imagine more robots and technology, but what about some changes that you may not see coming? In this episode, I talk with Dr. John Carr about his take on what the future of our industry will look like and what areas of swine production we need to further emphasize. Some of his answers may surprise you… "We need to revisit feed. It's not about how we convert the best corn on the planet, but rather the worst corn on the planet." - Dr. John Carr

    Arguably the best thing that the swine industry can do today to plan for the future is to get the next generation interested in agriculture. With less families having a background in agriculture today than in past generations, it is much more difficult to introduce children to the swine industry. In today's episode with Dr. Joel DeRouchey, we talk about the importance of this subject and the opportunities we need to utilize to attract the bright minds of the future. "Each one of you that are listening can have a large impact on spurring the interest of our youth in the swine industry." - Dr. Joel DeRouchey
