Friday Session 1-a
Pastured pig management can reliably produce outstanding pork, differentiated by taste and nutritional value. This session will give you insights into pig psychology, giving you strategies and practical skills that work with the animal’s natural behavior. While we’ll focus on butcher pig production, we’ll also briefly discuss pastured farrowing.
Steve Deibele and his wife, Marie, have operated a small certified organic farm since 2002 that produces grass-fed beef and pastured Berkshire hogs. He was formally trained as an electrical engineer, and brings an analytical perspective to the operation, continually experimenting to improve systems.
