New on Raising Pigs

Watched the news lately? Specifically the news about chemical and medication residue left in the meat we buy at the grocery store?

Although most news stories have focused on the obscene feeding practices of cattle and the horrendous living conditions for poultry, I’ll hazard a guess that a large percentage of North American pigs are living in equally terrible conditions. In fact for years it has been common practice for hog growers to feed their commercial pigs something called swill. Swill is restaurant garbage – scraped off people’s plates, rotten produce emptied out of the walk-in fridges, leftover foods from the bottom of steamers and sidetables – plus goodness knows what else.

There are darn good reasons the feeding of swill is now against the law in Australia folks, but only in the last two years has the practice begun to be monitored in the United States and Canada…

When you take a good hard look at pork being sold in the grocery store you can’t help but wonder, “Why would I want to eat an animal that has been confined, unhappy, and fed garbage all his life?”


“If eating garbage makes an animal sick – sickness that hasn’t yet manifested because the animals are slaughtered so young – then what exactly am I cooking up for my family here?”

Just think about that the next time you serve hot dogs, pork chops, bacon or ham…

Think about it, but also know that there is an alternative. If you have just a little extra room on your land and 30 minutes (or less) per day, you can grow your own pork in about 5 months time.

In fact I’d like to share my methods with you on raising your own healthy, happy pork in less than 10 minutes per day, to provide you with the information you need to choose the healthiest piglet, and even save you a few dollars at the butcher (by walking you through the steps to partially preparing the meat yourself).

So, if you are absolutley sick of the way commercial meat packers have been treating the animals raised for your family’s food supply, and worried (with good reason) about the quality of the meat you consume, now is the time to get your hands on “Raising Pigs Made Easy” at 40% off our projected retail price once the launch phase has passed.
