  • Have you ever considered what actions would need to be taken if ASF found its way into the US swine population? This virus continues to be a looming threat to the country as it would bring enormous economical losses along with it. Today we discuss what measures are necessary to prevent the entry of ASF into the country, and what plans are in place if the virus does manage to find its’ way into our herd.

  • We often put a lot of focus on the sow when it comes to swine reproduction, but what about the boar? Today in our talk with Dr. Kerns, we discuss many things such as the importance of zinc, different semen extenders, and how to properly maintain and check motility. This is a great opportunity to learn more about some important steps in a boar stud.

    𝗠𝗲𝗲𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗴𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁: Chris grew up in Orange City, Iowa, and in 2008, he saw an opportunity to join the family pork production business. As he began to buy and raise feeder pigs, he saw the writing on the wall; it was time to go big or go out of business. The venture was a success and scaled from about 30 farms to over 350 farms and started raising over 1.5 million pigs per year (2018). As the company grew, so did the problems — from spiking death loss to sinking caregiver morale. In search of an answer to his company’s issues, Chris searched for a market solution, but none existed. That’s when he founded EveryPig, a pig health and production management platform.
