In session at SARE's Our Farms, Our Future Conference, John Arbuckle explored opportunities to improve the sustainability of pork production by looking at alternative methods, including pastured pork systems that lead to improved animal welfare, reduced production costs, minimized environmental impacts, farm product diversity, and increased profitability; re-vegetating pastures with annuals as forage and finishing hogs on acorns; turning your pork passion into a paycheck with strong business management.
