Moving from Cows to Sows

Dr. Christine Mainquist-Whigham (’16)
Christine Mainquist-Whigham says there are never two weeks the same at Pillen Family Farms. She divides her time among the 18 commercial sow units and downstream nursery finish spaces, and oversees the farm’s disease elimination program. “I feel inspired to do the best I can for this company and these pigs,” Mainquist-Whigham says. “Hopefully, I continue to grow my role here and continue to improve the health of our pigs and keep foreign animal diseases out.”
