Swine Marketing: Changes and Opportunities
I appreciate the opportunity to visit with you this morning about marketing for alternative swi~e production systems. Traditionally as producers we're very good at producing, and by golly, somebody will buy it: build it and they will come. You will be learning today about what can and cannot be produced in these [alternative] systems and how profitably it can be done. This is very important, but you've still got to sell the stuff. I think some of these alternative systems offer some challenges, and we're going to take a look at those. And they offer some opportunities that we have not seen for a long, long time. We're going to talk a little bit about those as well. So, we'll just get right into it.
