Integration and Execution – Advance Technology in the Swine Industry Chris Bomgaars

The swine industry is in need of applied & novel technologies to save money for both producers and consumers. In this episode, we have the pleasure of speaking with Chris Bomgaars about different ways we can begin to implement technology into the barns and ways we can use it to get the most out of both our pigs and our employees.

𝗠𝗲𝗲𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗴𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁: Chris grew up in Orange City, Iowa, and in 2008, he saw an opportunity to join the family pork production business. As he began to buy and raise feeder pigs, he saw the writing on the wall; it was time to go big or go out of business. The venture was a success and scaled from about 30 farms to over 350 farms, and started raising over 1.5 million pigs per year (2018). As the company grew, so did the problems from spiking death loss to sinking caregiver morale. In search of an answer to his company’s issues, Chris searched for a market solution, but none existed. That’s when he founded EveryPig, a pig health and production management platform.
