Very interesting interview. Didn't know YouTube had videos that long. Gives me plenty to look into. Good thing I don't have to fill the loft $$. Never knew there was an American with that much international success

He described himself as obsessed. Alot of the greats at anything are seldom mediocre. He has a business mind also. That matters on anything having to do with animal husbandry. When I had a 200 doe meat rabbitry,the cut to make a breeding doe was tough. Too little profit margins. In fact the vermicompost was more profitable.

Understand were you are coming from. Did dairy farming and then pigs. This place here shut down when prices got low. Had a 1000 sows plus offspring. My son manages a 3000 sow herd. They went to the African pig that produces 20 pigs a litter compared to the normal 10 or 12. Africans only had one litter a year. With modern crossing, his sows now average 18 2.5 times a year. The breeding stock is in demand. All is possible!

Wow! That is amazing. I had hogs in 4H. Back then the gold standard was one for each teat. No market for suckling piglet then. The world changes. Almost no one keeps a larder hog around here anymore. I still like to bake with lard.

Your working on it FW, and that is a start. I had no choice but to quit drinking, but I miss my bourbon Crying or Very sad I do like waking up feeling better, save for a few dozen painful joints. Right before I quit I found my favorite beer. Think it was called tady porter-tad caster. (Something like that).

Newcastle Brown and Camerons Strongarm were my favourites years ago. Now can only drink near beer. 0.5%  Plus a cheap Port wine. 18% on ice.
