Hog Debate Heats Up
DES MOINES, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - The debate between rural and urban interests in Iowa continues to heat up as farmers try to expand to keep up with demand for pork.
Hog producers are trying to replace pigs they lost to a deadly disease and trying to take advantage of higher pork prices.
At the same time, activist groups are protesting the expansions because of concerns about the environmental impact on people who live nearby.
