Making History at Livingston Enterprises
Former Worldwide Farmers Exchange trainees Bienvenido De Guzman, Ruby Ruel Ocho, Adson David, Alfred Camalian, and Anthony Dizon made history when they completed their 2008 internships at Livingston Enterprises in Fairbury, Nebraska: they were the first five trainees from the Philippines to live and train in swine production.
All five trainees credit WFE for helping them improve their experience in swine production and increasing their marketability in the industry.
