N.C. Hog Farmer Discusses Hog Nuisance Lawsuits (VIDEO)
Supporting more than 46,000 jobs and contributing $11 billion annually, hog farming plays an important role in North Carolina’s economy, especially in the eastern part of the state. But it’s been a tumultuous year for hog farmers, due to the recent hog nuisance lawsuits.
