''SwineTalks was an outstanding format for providing a broad range of highly applicable content. When I first registered I was cautiously optimistic, but was impressed by the actual product. I personally enjoy being exposed to a variety of topics and SwineTalks met that need for me! Will absolutely participate again and will look to possibly have more of my team participate next year."

I appreciate all your efforts to advance our industries communication and messaging platforms into the 21st Century – I know this has to be a difficult path at times given how “old school” our industry can be, but it’s outstanding to have you take on this challenge and be so successful in doing so."
