    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.

    Tune is this week with host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental News Network, as we explore this subject.

    This Week's Guests:

    Diane Halverson — Farm Animal Advisor, Animal Welfare Institute, Minnesota

    Paul Willis — Hog farmer and Manager, The Niman Ranch Pork Company, Thornton, Iowa

    Kevin Von Klause — Chef Partner, White Dog Café, Philadelphia, PA
