SwineCast 1007 Show Notes:

  • Just as we're interested in our customers' perspective, our suppliers like to hear our likes and dislikes. At the United Soybean Board’s February meeting, a panel of animal nutritionists explained to soybean farmers what they’re looking for in their animals’ diets. With both the poultry and swine industries represented, we thought you'd find it of value. Panel members included Randy Mitchell, vice president, technical services at Perdue Farms, for the poultry industry perspective and Dr. Dean Boyd, technical director for The Hanor Company, for the swine industry perspective. Gordon Denny, USB’s soybean meal market analyst, moderated the panel.
