Pig farms

Wow, take a look at where our pork comes from.

Makes me think about tree huggers who say hunting wild game for the table is inhumane, and then go to the supermarket to buy their factory pork in plastic wrapped packages.

I went to college with a guy whose family owned a large pig farm in North Dakota. Out there they just had long ditches that ran down a slope. Imagine -20 degrees and trying to wash pig crap down a ditch. I had the mispleasure one summer of being there when they were doing ditch maintenance after the spring thaw. You didn't want to get downwind of them
Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley
