Between the two, that accounts for about 47,000 pigs - a day!Just across the river from my house is Smithfield Packing (Smithfield Ham, etc.). They slaughter around 15,000 hogs every day. Livestock trucks from North Carolina and other locations in Virginia are a daily occurrence, and accidents involving them happen at least once every year. Even if half of the hogs in a wreck survive, that leaves around 90 to catch and corral. Not to mention the cleanup of the ones that didn't survive. It's a chore. And that's not their biggest plant. That one is in Tar Hell, NC, and it slaughters 32,000 hogs every day.
Don't know . . . but that's a lot of bologna! (From a ham).Between the two, that accounts for about 47,000 pigs - a day!
