PRODUCTION TIP
On-your-farm research
Successful farmers try new things every year, whether that be genetics, feed ingredients, management practices, or equipment. Nothing is more valuable than taking public or private products and research, and placing them in your farm’s real-world conditions. Tried something before with insignificant or ill-measured results? ISUEO swine program specialists in your area can gladly help you design and monitor a valid on-farm trial. Find and talk with your specialist today https://www.extension.iastate.edu/ag/swine
