Hear from Extension faculty, educators and graduate students about their swine research. Podcasts are released bimonthly.
Pig wellness, assured
176 certified Pork Quality Assurance Plus advisors improved the well-being of over 11 million pigs.
Diane DeWitte, Mankato-based Extension educator, specializes in swine. Along with educator Sarah Schieck and Extension animal scientists, she brings research-based programming to pork producers across Minnesota. Consumers care that livestock are treated well on the farm. Pork producers and transporters assure the well-being of pigs through Pork Quality Assurance Plus and Transport Quality Assurance Certification training. Recommendations are research-based, and farm visits are part of the evaluation.
The results? Minnesota hog farms meet and exceed expectations of the national pork industry, and consumers enjoy that tasty bacon with confidence.
