Odorless Pigs?

Odorless Pigs?

Odorless Pigs?

Pigs are a staple of the Hawaiian diet, but they can be a nuisance to raise. They are incredibly clever troublemakers and, even worse to deal with, they reek. The good news? That smell can be eliminated with the help of indigenous microorganisms. Beginning in 1965, Master Han Kyu Cho began to perfect his methodology for reducing the smell produced by pig farms,The Korean Natural Farming Method. Looking for a solution to his own pig farms problems, Mike DuPonte visited a Korean pig farm that had banished the smell and flies so heavily associated with pig farming. Impressed, he brought back the Korean Natural Farming techniques to his own Hawaiian pig farm. Duponte, working with the Department of Health, and conducted extensive testing for two years to secure a building permit and helping get Korean Natural Farming methods approved as “best practices” for raising pigs by the USDA. Upon experiencing the impressive absence of smell on his farm, fellow farmers in turn are eagerly adopting the practice. Odorless Pigs are possible.
