Every day, passionate people take great care in raising pigs. America's pig farmers work hard to provide safe, quality pork for everyone's table. They do not take days off for holidays or winter storms because the pigs depend on them to survive. The U.S. pork industry also contributes more than meat to society including jobs, support local commerce and contribute to the economic tax base. So, this holiday season take time to say "thank you" to a farmer as you enjoy the fruits of their labor.
