Overview of System Options: Economics and Production
It's very heartening to have you all here today. I need to tell you all a little story. As I get older I realize how smart my dad was, but he did one really dumb thing. He raised purebred Landrace hogs and he built a clothesline right along the fence. And right across the fence from that clothesline was where we watered those Landrace sows, and there was a big mud hole there. When my mom would do the wash, she'd hang the sheets out there on the line. It would get hot and those sows would go lie in the wallow and they'd stand up and shake their heads, and there would be these little brown spots all over my mom's clean sheets. Well, dad never moved the clothesline, but he did move the sows.
