"When you're talking about how to impact the intransigent minority, you can't add more force with force. You have to recognize the intransigent minority is not the group you're negotiating with. You're negotiating with the group that's in the middle. And what they want to know is: do you understand the concerns of the people on the other side? Because if you do understand their point of view and you can show why your point of view addresses their needs, but yet they're still happy, then you have a far better chance of winning over the massive middle." – Vance CroweWhat you will learn:Millennial Engagement for Monsanto; The way we connect with consumers; Storytelling; Knowledge gaps; The intransigent minority; Long-term trends; Social media; Negotiation; The Dunning-Kruger Effect; Documentaries; Biggest lessons from his podcast; The Peter Thiel Paradox; Communications.Meet the guest: Vance Crowe is a communications consultant that has worked for corporations and international organizations around the world.

“Unfortunately, most of the processes - if not all - are human-driven. When you have people breeding sows, why are there farms with the same genetics and semen source not performing at the same farrowing rate level? Just because in one farm they do a better process than the other farm. The same thing happens with biosecurity and I think today we're living that same scenario with Covid.” – Dr. Cesar Corzo What you will learn: The Morrison Swine Health Monitoring Project; Sharing data; PED reports; The next level on innovation and technology; PRRS - epidemiology, risk factors, and potential factors; Cause and effect situation; PRRS diversity; Genome difference; Senecavirus – prevalence and risk factors; ASF – secure food systems; Biosecurity and compliance.

“If you want nutrition to be an important tool, you have to make sure that the other areas of your production are also up to snuff. So, are you maintaining a clean and comfortable environment? Are you sourcing healthy pigs to start? What are their pre-weaning environment, and what are they coming in with? Am I reducing the pathogen load there, so they're not bringing it with them into the barn? Are they stressed coming into the barn?” – Dr. Brooke Smith What you will learn: Biggest misconception on the immune system; Host immune response to PRRSV; Soybean meal and soy bioactive compounds; Soybean and total lysine requirement; Biggest learnings from Dr. Jim Lowe; Causes of mortality; Animal disease research; People with no agriculture background; Empathy in livestock production.
