Summer 2021 Issue

It is that time of year… summer! Where the bright sun is shining and the corn is growing around us. Despite the heat of summer days, we as farmers put in long days both in the fields and in the barns to ensure we provide the best care we can for our animals and our environment.

In the July issue of the PIPESTONE Journal, we highlight the theme, Enhance Performance. To me, enhance performance means improving upon the way you currently perform and never settling for “good enough” and striving to create the farm of tomorrow.

From summer diet formulation hacks and reaching your target market weights, to using KPI’s to understand the impact of production decisions, this issue of the Journal has the tips and tricks from PIPESTONE expertise to help you enhance performance.
