Podcasts are a perfect way to get caught up with new swine information! We are presenting you the latest episode from “At The Meeting… Honoring Dr. Bob Morrison” in collaboration with SwineCast.
Decreases in pork production in other EU countries have created growth opportunities for Spanish pork producers, but the potential for increasing regulation and declining consumption of pork are causing concern.
