Sharing the pig farming story through TikTok

Pig veterinarian takes social media journey to educate the public about pig farming.

Dr. Cara Haden, a PIPESTONE pig vet located in Independence, Iowa, took a social media journey that has helped educate thousands of people. In October 2020, Cara created a TikTok account to share pig farming content. Her goals remain to educate the public on where their pork comes from as well as showcase how much pig farmers care about their animals. Her minute long videos range in topics from pig care to food labels and much more.

In this episode of SwineTime Podcast, Dr. Spencer Wayne, a fellow PIPESTONE pig vet, visits with Cara about the importance of producing honest and accurate content, how to navigate negative comments and who this platform has reached. Having one of the few global TikTok accounts to share pig farming content, Cara encourages more pig producers to share their stories with the public.

Tune in to learn tips on how to do it yourself!

Hosted by Dr. Wayne, the podcast contains pork industry news, advancements in animal care and how to enhance your productivity.
