 [Editor's note: A big thank you to Natasha for sharing her enthusiasm and experience with us, as she traveled to the PigCHAMP head office in Ames, IA to learn more about PigCHAMP products and services. We all enjoyed having her visit and hope our paths cross again soon!] Jetlag hit me hard upon arrival, so luckily I had the weekend to rest up.  Charles and the kids did everything to make me comfortable and to make sure that I get enough rest.
