Large -scale corporate hog production is one of the most contentious issues to confront rural North America in recent history.

The social fabric of many communities has been ripped apart by controversy between opposing views of these large-scale corporate hog operations.

Hog factories can no longer be considered farming or agriculture , or even agri-business.

This is industry, pure and simple. We must remember that this is not a natural or inevitable evolution of agriculture. This is a deliberate plan by a handful of corporations to profit from consolidation, and ultimately control the hog industry.
