Open house offers glimpse of modern, group sow housing

Boerboom Ag Resources unveiled a new sow unit to the public on Jan. 4. The barn features technology allowing for group sow housing, enabling the Boerboom family to meet consumers' wishes, as well as keeping family on the farm.

Keeping another generation on the farm, as well as giving consumers what they want, were driving forces to the latest expansion of the Boerboom Ag Resources hog operation.

The Boerboom family opened their new sow farm near Vesta, Minn., to the public Jan. 4 to showcase new technology enabling them to make the transition to group sow housing.
