SwineTime Podcast Episode 41: The Path to an Older Wean Age

In this episode of SwineTime, host, Dr. Spencer Wayne, sits down with PIPESTONE’s Director of Records and Information, Angie Homann, and President of Nutrition, Jon De Jong. Recently, PIPESTONE has taken steps to explore the benefits and challenges of an older weaned pig. The health benefits are evident for grow-finish farmers. Older weaned pigs are healthier, stronger, and in most cases, require less antibiotics. What does this look like at the sow farm level? What does the data behind performance say? Tune into this episode as our guests dive into the logistics of those questions and where PIPESTONE is directing their efforts to meet the demand from grow-finish shareholders.

PIPESTONE’s mission is “Helping Farmers Today Create the Farms of Tomorrow.” The SwineTime podcast was created for pig farmers and individual pork producers around the country. Hosted by Dr. Wayne, the podcast contains pork industry news, advancements in animal care and how to enhance your productivity.
