Carthage Learning and Development Center

Our classroom training is right next to a demo facility that features current swine products and equipment.

Biosecurity matters. Pigs are absent in the training facility. This allows our domestic or international learners to become familiar with a barn design, understand how the equipment is used, and familiarize themselves with the environment without direct livestock exposure that could increase their return down time. And if they want to go to a farm, we can.

Combining years of veterinary and production experience, our team of specialized staff will help meet your company needs.

NOTE: Our policy requires 5 nights downtime after arrival in the US prior to livestock contact experiences.
