Program helps hog producers be more efficient

US - Baby pigs romp across the grassy slopes under the watchful eyes of their mothers, ducking in and out of the huts lining the landscape of Ron Mardesen's southwest Iowa farm. Mardesen, who farms near here in Cass County, runs a farrow-to-finish operation and supplies pigs to Niman Ranch Pork. He has been farrowing sows outdoors since 1986 and has been affiliated with Niman Ranch since 2001.
