In this episode, Paul posts the audio from a recent webinar he did covering ag labor issues.
Recent high profile animal welfare videos have highlighted issues when employees can cause problems for livestock operations. Many farms should take a moment to review their hiring practices and how they train employees to use generally accepted handling practices that will not harm livestock.
This webinar will cover how to properly hire and train employees in a livestock operation to prevent animal welfare issues down the road.
