Ben and Andrew go way back and the story of their reconnecting is worth the listen on it's own. Andrew is the Production Manager at Reliance Pork and shares his story of growing up on the farm, leaving for a season and returning to the operations. 

From leadership tips and insights on managing a larger barn team, Andrew has a lot to share about his experiences. Don't miss the end of the episode where Andrew shares his, must read books in regards to business and management.
