DeKalb County is the second largest hog producing county in Illinois.
Did you know that there are more hogs than people in DeKalb County? That’s right. There are about 235,000 hogs on farms throughout the local area. You don’t necessarily see the pigs as you drive by farms because they are house in climate-controlled buildings which keep them comforable. During Octover’s Pork Month we salue farmers for thei hard work in raising health pigs.
