Dr. Bob Thaler

Professor and Extension Swine Specialist
South Dakota State University

“With nutrition representing 65-70% of the cost of production for a swine operation, it is essential especially in these challenging times that swine professionals truly understand swine nutrition. Not only does this program provide a well-rounded approach to understanding nutrition, but it takes it to the next level by addressing other issues beyond basic nutritional concepts including critically evaluating research, the economics of individual nutrients, the balance of nutrition vs pig performance, and personal development. If you are looking to taking one class that will make a significant difference in your operation, this is the one of choice.”

Dr. Hyatt Frobose

Swine Nutritionist & USA Commercial Director
Jyga Technologies - Gestal

"Despite the constantly evolving nature of the swine industry, Dr. Gonçalves and his team at Swine it continue to find innovative ways to deliver current, data-driven, and practical information to help improve "slat-level" production. As a multi-year Swine it supporter, I know that a continuing education investment with Swine it will be value-driven, dynamic, and useful in everyday production for current nutritionists and swine industry professionals worldwide."

Dr. Mariana Menegat

Swine Nutritionist
Holden Farms

"Swine nutrition is an ever-evolving field. From reassessing nutrient requirements and evaluating new ingredients, to going back to basics or challenging the status quo, swine nutritionists always rely heavily on science, applicability, and economics in their decision-making process. I believe continuous learning is a core value shared by many swine professionals, and a program as the Elite Swine Nutritionist that delivers on the triad science-applicability-economics is the go-to for top education and great impact in the swine industry."

Dr. Chad Hastad

Director of Nutrition, Research, & Operational Support
