June 4, 2003 - Happy Hogs
More than 70% of all the piggies raised in America are owned by one company: Smithfield. A small portion of the remaining 30% are owned by farmers like our guest Paul Willis. In today's show we 'll talk about non- industrial hog production, underlying issues, and ramifications for farmers, the animals and our diets.
