Guts. Glory. Bacon?
Dodge Ram made headlines earlier this year as their “So God Made a Farmer” advertisement rocked Super Bowl audiences. Naming 2013 as the “year of the farmer,” Dodge Ram is honoring all facets of agriculture, from grain producers to cattle ranchers and everyone inbetween.
This week the pro-agriculture company launched an infographic to celebrate hog producers and America’s favorite breakfast food – bacon.
Included in the infographic were the following facts:
- Pork production is responsible for nearly 35,000 full-time jobs and helps generate an additional 515,000 jobs indirectly.
- There are more than 67,000 pig farms in the United States and over half produce at least 5,000 pigs annually.
- Bacon accounts of 18 percent of all U.S. in-home pork consumption
