Speakers will include:

  • Veterinarian Dr. Lance Fox has seen the world from the top. After reading a book on Mount Everest in one day, Dr. Fox set a goal to see the mountain in person. Soon after, he climbed to the apex – a feat that required thought-out goals and significant perseverance. 
  • Steve Stitzlein, Chief of Operations of Heimerl Farms will share his experiences in achieving goals from nursery to finish and how a clear, direct plan and teamwork aided in the success of the facility.

Sponsored by: United Soybean Board

Did you know more than 40% of the choice white grease produced in the U.S. is used to make biodiesel?  And that this new demand for animal fat has added significantly to the value of market hogs, increasing revenue to the hog industry more than $150 million.  Have you thought about the fact that increased demand for soybased biodiesel increases the supply of soybean meal and lowers the relative cost of your feed bill?  Learn more about how a healthy biodiesel impacts swine production in your state.
