Pasture Farrowing: Infrastructure, Scheduling and Seeding

Friday, June 12 | 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.

Jude By Old BarnFor experienced producers and newcomers alike, scaling up a swine enterprise to include farrowing can be challenging. Jude will share how he manages his organic farrow-to-finish operation and we will see how his waterline and fencing on pasture are set up. Jude will also highlight sow scheduling, controlling herd size and establishing a steady production flow, and provide tips on farrowing.
