  •  Good question. Many of the same concerns (1+ / 0-)

    apply to hogs as with cows. The main difference is that hogs are not ruminants, so the produce less methane. They also require less space.

    Hogs (as well as chickens) are still part of the same inefficient, polluting corn-to-meat system. (Inefficient in comparison to protein from plants.)

    There are about 30,000 hogs in confinements within 4 miles south of me. I can tell when the wind is from the south, especially if someone is spreading manure. There are also a lot of big, open cattle feedlots in my county.
