The University of Minnesota Extension Swine Team has released its latest podcast to assist producers feeding pigs in this climate of interrupted markets.
UM Extension swine educator Sarah Schieck Boelke recently sat down with Lee Johnston and Pedro Urriola to discuss nutritional strategies producers can implement to slow the growth of pigs whose harvest plants have closed due to COVID-19.
