On Thursday, July 13th, in Brandon (Manitoba) and Monday, July 17th, in Headingly (Manitoba), Nutrition Partners hosted their second annual “Hog Boss Day” meetings. Speakers at the meetings included Dr John Carr (Veterinarian) and Jan Geurts (Lead Swine Nutritionist).
The concept behind these meetings is to have a smaller group (7 to 10) hog managers in attendance. This small group encourages participation among everyone in an open round table discussion. By design there is no set agenda of topics, we leave that up to the producers. As with last year the only negative feedback we received was that the meeting was not long enough!
