FARM FACILITIES
The idea of slated floors was being used in Europe, Russ adapted it for his farm. Now, buildings are used for weaning all the way to finishing. Waste can be stored in a lagoon.
NEIGHBORS
It is a good idea to listen to one's neighbors, whether it is produce extra sweet corn and share it, or give out sausage at Christmas time. They try to be conscientious about the smell their farm produces.
FARM ORGANIZATIONS
Illinois Swine Herd Improvement Association
REFLECTIONS
Russ feels that if you take your time and let things develop naturally they will turn out better than forcing change.
