The adjustments to the gene pool over time have made things more efficient for today’s hog farmers. Whereas before it took five pounds of feed to produce one pound of pork, thanks to genetics now the ratio is two to one. It’s easier to put on a pound of lean than a pound of fat. The pigs are raised this way because the average consumer wants bacon to be leaner with less fat. But these changes have resulted in an animal that would no longer survive out in the straw pile, the way pigs were raised fifty years ago.
During the war, pigs played a key role in defending our freedom, as most lard was diverted to the military for use in manufacturing explosives.

S. pork industry has seen explosive growth, with most operations being consolidated into large-scale farms.
