My friend is involved in the pork industry business and he attended the Pork Management Conference with a couple of co-workers. It was a good experience for them as they learned a lot of valuable things. After he found out about Des Moines offer he moved in Atlanta, now he wants to establish a new farm and needs all the information he can get to make his business flourish.

Most states require a license, but about 15 states such as Colorado have no licensing requirements for adjusters. If you live in a state that doesn't require a license, working in your home state is not an issue.
