Workshop Session: Saturday II

Take the fear out of going “whole hog” into pastured pork by learning startup basics. This workshop covers breeds, housing, watering systems, feeding systems, fencing strategies, and pasture management. Plus, see data collected over the past two years about weight gain, pasture composition, paddock size, and frequency of rotation from Rodale Institute’s pastured hog operation.

Shelby Dukes grew up on a multi-generation family farm in Delaware and has been the Animal Husbandry Coordinator at Rodale Institute since 2014, where she manages the raising of pigs, poultry, sheep, and cattle.
