Managing for Profit
Custom hog feeding helped this young farmer get started
When Ben Johnson of LeMars, Iowa returned to the family farm after college, the first thing he did was build two state-of-the-art, 2,400 head, wean-to-finish swine buildings so he could custom feed hogs. Six years later, Johnson says that was a very good decision.
We visited with Ben at the recent Iowa Farm Bureau annual meeting in Des Moines.
