Podcast: Dr. Joel DeRouchey: Inspiring youth to be the future of the swine industry

34

Arguably the best thing that the swine industry can do today to plan for the future is to get the next generation interested in agriculture. With less families having a background in agriculture today than in past generations, it is much more difficult to introduce children to the swine industry. In today’s episode with Dr. Joel DeRouchey, we talk about the importance of this subject and the opportunities we need to utilize to attract the bright minds of the future.

“Each one of you that are listening can have a large impact on spurring the interest of our youth in the swine industry.” – Dr. Joel DeRouchey
