  1. Pork is the most widely eaten meat in the world and has more protein than chicken and is high in zinc, iron and B-vitamins.
  2. Even though they don’t seem like it, pigs are the cleanest farm animals. They roll in mud because they don’t sweat and that is their way of cooling off.
  3. Insulin and about 40 other medicines are made from pigs and their heart valves can be used replace damage human heart valves.
  4. Pigs are smart! They can learn to push a lever in the barn- yard to get a drink of water or a dish of food. Over the years pigs have been taught to tumble, race, pull carts, dance and hunt.
  5. You’d be surprised at the number of things that are made from pigs! There are more than 500 different types of important things besides meat that come from pigs. Examples of pig by-products are chewing gum, animal feeds, leather, glue, combs, buttons, plastics, paintbrushes, plywood, adhesive, insulation, upholstery, cosmetics, antifreeze, cellophane, floor waxes, cement, crayons, chalk, matches, putty, and linoleum.
