The first episode of the Real P3 podcast series takes listeners to Denmark. Dr Casey Bradley speaks to Mihaela Angheluta, manager of a 500+ sow farm. Piglets from Mihaela’s farm are transferred to Germany and later Poland when they weigh about 10kg.

The Real P3 podcast series is a recent initiative, where pork producers from all over the world will be interviewed about challenges and solutions in their day-to-day work.
