Welcome to Tech Watch! This new column is designed to keep you, our pork producer readers, abreast of new digital resources that can be applied to your production and risk-management strategies.

To kick off the Tech Watch column we would like to introduce you to www.nationalhogfarmer.com, our brand-new Website. The National Hog Farmer staff has spent the last few months completely reworking our Website into an even more producer-friendly source of timely information that impacts your business while accommodating new digital and smartphone technology.

The new site is better organized so you can monitor hot topics in the pork industry and “must read” information right at the top of the site. A robust search engine helps you search our editorial database to find the business management guidance and timely production information that helps keep modern pork production systems competitive and profitable. Once you’ve found what you are looking for, you will find links to several integrated media streams like related articles and videos in a one-stop shop.

Find more breaking news and details about the production and marketing information presented in our well-known e-newsletters, National Hog Farmer Weekly Preview and Nutrient Management.

We hope you like the new look and all the new features. We invite you to check out our site, and let us know what you think.
