Raymond Hain at Grain Place Foundation has been studying the rates of gain for silvopastural free-range hogs compared to drylot-raised hogs. He's curious if #silvopasture hog production can increase and diversify the income on crop/livestock farms, using quality pasture with by-products from on-farm grain processing. This video is Hain's presentation at the 2022 Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society conference.
