A special three part series has been posted featuring SwineCast management consultant Don Tyler. Don brings a wealth of experience and insight via conversations and consultations with producers across a wide spectrum of business models.

Key comments are… Talk to someone. If you observe behavior changes in yourself or in others, ask questions or provide additional information to those asking you. Certainly this experience is beyond historical precedent as we have dealt with animal health issues, exports, feed costs… etc. Many in our industry have experienced unanticipated change first hand.

This current business cycle is 1) not typical and 2) may not be resolved using the same solutions as before. We hope these three programs will assist in evaluating the current situation, identifying the best outcomes and initiating the moves necessary.

"I am sure there are some true believers really hitting the ceiling today after the release of the meta-study published this month in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition entitled "Nutritional Quality of Organic Foods: A Systematic Review". This journal is certainly not "in the pocket" of major agri-business interest nor is the institute which conducted the analysis: The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.

    Here is the money quote: On the basis of a systematic review of studies of satisfactory quality, there is no evidence of a difference in nutrient quality between organically and conventionally produced foodstuffs. The small differences in nutrient content detected are biologically plausible and mostly relate to differences in production methods". Read more.
