Swine it #56: Formulation as a new production nutritionist - Dr Jeff Hansen

13 September 2020, at 1:48pm

I very much encourage people to go out into production, and get that experience… it is a high-stress job. That is OK. You learn a lot. Get involved with your packer. Be the leader. Own that entire feed operation from a personal standpoint. The team does not have to report to you. You are a servant to all those people.
