The Less Glamorous Side of Agriculture

15 03 2011

Are you wondering what this is a picture of? Snow? Red, wet confetti? Guess again!

Ground up pig entrails trailed through Bluffs, Illinois is not the glamorous side of agriculture. It is actually the disgusting (not to mention smelly). Seven miles of bloody remains on Rt 100 makes a pungent problem and as the hours draw on the, the problem only becomes… well stinkier.

But one town’s suffering made the pork chop I had for dinner last night and the bacon I ate at lunch possible. Thanks, Bluffs!
