Slowing Pig Growth

With supply chain delays in getting pigs to a market or slaughter channel, you may be asking yourself, how do I get these market hogs slowed down on their growth?  There are several resources out there to help you decide how to move forward with slowing the growth rate while maintaining animal well-being.

Iowa State University Extension recently hosted a webinar on how to slow pig growth rate to manage market disruptions.  You can view the webinar via the YouTube link below.
