      Onyx looks really excited to be there. I'm sure that during the entire school year he was dreaming about seeing a pig farm over his summer vacation. Luckily, I was able to use the "fast forward" button.

    My uncle started the first automated pig farm back in Lubbock Texas many years ago. It was the most state of the art known at the time. I wonder what he would think of this operation and how it wous compare to what he had back then. I'm sure this is far beyond what he had. I can remember going there to help him when I was probably 7 or 8 years old and the smell was unbearable to me. As a matter of fact, I thought I could smell a little bit of stink while I was watching this video... lol...

        Wonder why we think it’s okay to keep animals like this, but no ones “farming humans” 🤔 obv the excuse is they don’t know what’s happening/don’t know better. Money is a powerful thing

                    Hog 1 : Hey guys there's a kid in here, let's make a good impression so hopefully he becomes a vegan.
                    Hog 2 : Dude he's a farmer, no chance.
                    Hog 1 : Agri farmer tho.
                    Hog 2 : Hmm, true. Worth a shot. Hey kid, you there! Take me! Adopt me! I can be like a dog, you like dogs yes?

                    Onyx : How much bacon would one pig get me?

                                    So good to see people like you guys out there who shows the majority of the population how modern agriculture looks like. Everyone should know how their loved bacon is produced. And that it's all right because the farmers really care about there produce, the animals and the liabilities they have for future generations. However I whish that life stock farmers especially hog farmers should earn more. At the end the race to the bottom cannot be won by the farmer. It requires the responsible consumer who is also willing to pay a little more for the bacon.

                                        Coming from a long line of ranchers (not me personally, unfortunately, but my parents, grandparents, relatives, etc.), I’m familiar with ranching operations...back then!! Holy moly, it’s absolutely amazing how the farming and ranching industry has gone so high tech. Your guys knowledge blows me away!! I’m learning so much about these businesses, and loving every minute of the experience! Thanks for sharing your worlds, city folk should be watching this....I think it would bring a little reality into their world!

                                              So, the pigs do not get to be pigs at all. Wow. How about a natural life? These pigs have no immune system because they are kept as sterile as possible. Keeping them clean is fine, but, it is not natural for a pig. But, whatever makes your boat float.

                                                          We need "Country of Origin" labeling laws in the USA... I only want to eat my pork, beef, and chicken from farms like this one. I've heard stories of how filthy other countries can be when it comes to livestock. I would be pretty darn happy if 100% of my food was produced by American and Canadian farm(er)s.

                                                                Does this hog farm recycle the manure into methane to run any of their electrical and heating systems? I can see an operation like theirs being totally self sufficient and go completely off grid. Cheers....

Blended with other things, it would work as animal feed. Waste not, want not. Of course, the general public is so distanced from their food that they generally only have a basic idea of where the food comes from and how that food was produced. If feed costs too much, the price of the end product goes up, the customer complains or even buys something else, everyone suffers. So long as the animals have a balanced diet and a reasonable life, all's good. I'm very sure farmers weren't feeding Skittles straight to cows. That would probably make them sick or even kill them. Of course they're not going to do that, that's lost money.
