Podcast: The Importance of Farm Visits


This episode is hosted by Mr. Vincent Ter Beek the Chief Editor of Pig Progress. Pressing questions about the importance of farm visits are addressed by Dr. Casey Bradley, a Swine Technology expert from the Sunswine Group in the US, and Mr. Philip van der Brink a senior Swine Nutritionist from Nutrition in the Netherlands. Some people frequent farms, while others do not; but the key question is: How to do it well? The experts explain why it is important to understand the situation on each farm before discussing nutrition as “problems are usually multifactorial.” As well the topics such as the importance of having reliable data, preparation, and biosecurity are discussed.
