This text is replaced by the Flash movie.

Hog farming is an integral component of the pork production industry. For this reason, this value chain shows, in addition to the true farming elements included in the raw materials and processing stages, the additional activities carried out by pork product manufacturers in the final product, distribution, and sales stages. Furthermore, three vital supporting industries are shown which represent opportunities for hog farmers and pork producers to optimize operations through the use of preservatives and the effective processing of waste or branding to differentiate themselves through innovative marketing strategies.
