Pigs

Domestic pigs are farmed primarily for the consumption of their flesh, called pork.
Feeding Programs/Management

Today, pig farms are significantly larger than in the past with the individual farm management focusing on housing facilities, feeding and ventilation systems, temperature and environmental controls and the economic viability of their operations. Just as producers have to determine profit margins and types of facilities and equipment for their farm, they must also find the practices that best fit their specific situation.
