Brandon Bell had a little co-pilot as he applied hog manure to his fields recently.

Bell, a fifth generation Iowa pig farmer, posted the photo as his #RealPigFarming story. The photo shows pig farmers have other duties to fulfill on their farms that take them out of the hog barns and into the fields…with canine helpers at their sides.  

His post was part of the #RealPigFarming campaign sponsored by the National Pork Board. The social media campaign encourages the nation’s pork producers to share photos and experiences online using the hashtag, #RealPigFarming. Read, “Pork Checkoff launches social media blitz.”
