FARMING METHODS
Used to be a pig hatchery where they sold baby pigs to others to finish out, now they finish pigs. There's a lot of specialization now. They're one of the first people to try to put pigs inside. Shows a building that held long narrow pens. Used to hold pigs for a long time, starting in the 1950s. Then converted to a finisher. Building is no longer going to be used. The capacity of the building was about 60 sows and their litters.
