Pork turns out to be the most consumed form of meat for folks in the Netherlands and given such a high demand for production coupled with concerns of disease, the industry is presented with a couple of options to sustain productivity.
Either everyone goes vegetarian overnight or we change the production techniques... and given the unlikelihood of an increase in veggies, a new method for biological farming becomes necessary.
So if the trend is to go towards a healthier organic farming, 75% of the land in the Netherlands would have to be dedicated to pigs... an unreasonable demand.
Pig City is the idea of combining organic feed farming and meat production in a vertical tower element. [hit the link for some renderings...] By condensing the footprint and limiting the need for transport, the possibility of disease is reduced.
My question is, do the pigs that have the penthouse views take a higher price per cut?
