Studies have shown that animals raised in confinement heighten the risk of spreading food-borne illnesses. This creates the potential for real global human crises, like fungal, bacterial and viral pandemics. Studies also show confinement causes anxiety and stress in the animal, resulting in certain hormones to enter their body that can dramatically impact post-production quality. Today, pig farming practices found in most of America play major roles in poor air and water quality, which impacts surrounding communities. Waste and byproducts from pig production can contaminate local waterways and ground water tables, while large amounts of nitrogen from waste can impact soil and air quality. Most factory farms push this waste into large lagoons, which can become cesspools and severely impact community health. Rarely is the entire animal utilized in pork production, resulting in massive waste. All edible pork is processed for human consumption and our wastes are safely composted and provide high nutrients for our regenerative agriculture practices. In large and industrial hog operations, antibiotics are used to keep pigs alive in unsanitary conditions. The animals are pumped with antibiotics at a very young age. After animals are pumped with these antibiotics, they can develop drug resistant bacteria and fungi which greatly impact community health. As the owner of the Hang Belly Ranch and a practicing infectious disease physician, I believe that our GAP certified pork products can correct pig farming and slaughter practices.
